Expert Tips

Cacciatore is an Italian-American cooking term that refers to food prepared "hunter-style." Mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, herbs and wine are common ingredients in cacciatores. Chicken cacciatore is the most popular of these recipes.

To remove the skin from chicken drumsticks, use a paper towel to grab the skin and pull from the large end of the leg to the small part. The paper towels securely grip the slippery skin.

To keep your dinner quick and convenient, serve this cacciatore with a packaged salad mix, baby carrots and bakery rolls.
