Chicken Cacciatore is one of the simplest and most delicious Italian dishes. The name means “hunter’s stew”. This is Italian comfort food at its best. I like to make this recipe with a combination of boneless chicken thighs and breast meat in a 1:1 ratio, all cut into bite-sized bits and seared quickly in olive oil. The reason for using different parts of the chicken is that thighs provide softer texture and extra fat, and breast meat is firm and often favored by people. The mixture of two is truly perfect in a stew.
