Chicken cacciatore is prepared "hunter's style" or braised with tomatoes, onions, mushroom and bell pepper. This chicken recipe uses both light and dark meat but feel free to use only one or the other. I like to serve this dish with either rice or pasta. Fresh herbs are essential to this dish because they brighten the flavors of the sauce. Chicken cacciatore is a comforting dish that can be made any night of the week.
