Chicken cacciatore ('hunter's chicken') is the Italian take on France's chicken chasseur. With succulent chicken cooked in a rich tomato sauce with onion, carrot, fresh rosemary and thyme, it's a real family favourite. Served with crispy potatoes on the side. (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs.)

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into bite-sized pieces, add them to a baking tray and drizzle them with olive oil

Add a large pinch of salt and pepper and mix well

Put them in the oven for 20-25 min or until they're golden brown and crispy

2 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken thigh fillets and season them lightly with salt and pepper

Cook for 3 min or until starting to brown, turning occasionally for even colouring

3 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the garlic, carrot[s] and brown onion[s] 

Strip the rosemary and thyme leaves from the stalks and chop finely

Add the chopped onion[s], carrot[s] and garlic to the chicken

Cook for 3 min or until the vegetables have softened slightly

4 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Add the chopped rosemary and thyme to the pan and cook for 2 min 

Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1 min further 

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

5 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan with a pinch of sugar and cook for 3 min until the tomatoes have reduced a little

Tip: the sugar helps balance the acidity of the tomatoes

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 100ml [200ml] boiled water

 

6 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Once the tomatoes have thickened slightly, reduce the heat to medium

Add the chicken stock and season with pepper 

Cook for 10 min or until the sauce resembles a pasta sauce-like consistency

Tip: loosen with a splash of boiled water if the sauce becomes too dry

7 Chicken Cacciatore With Crispy Potatoes

Add the black olives and remove from the heat

Pull the chicken apart a little in the pan for easy eating – this is your chicken cacciatore

Tip: use two forks to pull the meat apart
