Chicken Cacciatore

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Serving Size: 4

Chicken Cacciatore


  • ¼ cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 8 (about 20oz./550 g) chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 6 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped garlic
  • 1 carton (480 mL) CAMPBELL'S Stock First ™ Chicken stock
  • 16 Zima Sweet Orange Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh rosemary, chopped


  1. In a large re-sealable plastic bag toss flour and chicken to coat evenly.
  2. Warm oil in a large heavy bottom ovenproof saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and cook bacon until fully cooked. Remove bacon from pan and set aside.
  3. Add the chicken pieces and brown chicken pieces evenly, about 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and set aside.
  4. Discard all but 1 tsp of the oil. Add onion and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  5. Add chicken, bacon, stock, diced tomato and rosemary and bring to a boil. Cover and bake for about 90 minutes at 325⁰F (170⁰C) oven or until chicken is very tender and cooked through.
  6. Remove chicken pieces from pot and ladle vegetables and braising liquid over chicken.


The original recipe called for:

3 (3 oz/85g) strips bacon, chopped- 1 large tomato, diced - 6 oz. white mushrooms, chopped

For a more elegant presentation puree vegetables and stock with a hand blender, or in a standard blender, and then ladle over chicken. You may serve this dish with the traditional pasta accompaniment or with roasted or mashed potatoes.


This original recipe was taken from Campbell.

    I like this recipe, it’s new for me because usually my chicken cacciatore has a tomato sauce. So I’m looking forward to making it.
