In Italy, cacciatore means ‘hunter’. When chicken is made a la cacciatore or chicken cacciatore it means that the chicken is cooked and prepared in hunter style. Chicken cacciatore is cooked with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, herbs, bell pepper, and wine. Some people cook chicken braised or rabbit a la cacciatore. Some also cooked salami cacciatore, which is originally come from the Italians.
The basic way to cook a la cacciatore is to get started by heating a couple of table spoon of olive oil in a large pan. Then the chicken parts which are already dusted with salt and pepper are cooked in the oil for three to four minutes on each side. The chicken is removed from the pan to remove small bit of the residual fat from the pan. The remaining fat is used to fry the onions, mushrooms, peppers or other vegetables for several minutes. A small can of peeled tomatoes is added to the pan along with some oregano and a half cup of dry red wine. The seared chicken parts are returned to the pan which is then covered. Then the chicken cacciatore is done after about an hour at a very low simmer. Cacciatore is often served with bread or some pasta on the side.
