I’ve been listening to you all and I keep hearing more family meals, so enter stage right this chicken cacciatore recipe.
I love this chicken cacciatore recipe not only because it’s Italian but because it’s a classic recipe that is so delicious.
I can’t lie, I’m starting to get nervous that we’re losing these traditional recipes like chicken cacciatore.
People now-a-days are taking these old traditional recipes and adding in all sorts of crazy stuff and saying it’s authentic.
NO, IT’S NOT.
