Taste of Maine . . . At Home This Summer 2010

Village Food Market's Chicken Cacciatore

A Great Dish for Casual Company - Set, Simmer and Serve!

Summer seems to bring people over, well, unexpectedly it seems. Make a tomato basil salad, grab some fresh bread for dipping and this recipe goes over very well.

The folks at the Village Food Market in Ogunquit recommend making the cacciatore with bone in chicken - either by cutting up a whole chicken or even better, by using bone in chicken thighs. Just be sure you simmer longer when you use bone in chicken.


2lb Chicken - Bone in or boneless
2Tbls Olive oil
6 Cloves Garlic Chopped
1 Medium Onion, sliced uniformly
12oz can Chicken Broth
1 cup Red Wine
3Tbls Tomato Paste
2 Medium Bell Peppers, cored and sliced uniformly
1lb Mushrooms, halved
Salt and pepper
1tsp. dried oregano
1tsp. dried basil


  1. In a large skillet heat your olive oil and add chicken, cook until golden brown, then remove to a dish.
  2. Add to the pan onions and garlic and sautée until translucent, then add wine and cook for a few minutes.
  3. Put chicken back in the pan add chicken broth, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.
  4. If using boneless chicken simmer for 20 minutes, if using bone in chicken simmer for 45 minutes. Add mushrooms and peppers simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Let stand for 10 minutes and serve.
