I wanted to make Chicken Cacciatore but decided when I got home to use this as the inspiration for a meal that would include corn, as I also had a craving for chicken noodle soup! This resulted in my recipe for Chicken And Corn Hunter Style. I love using Italian dishes as my inspiration. I find that their use of flavours and combinations is always good. Chicken cacciatore it one of my favourite Italian dishes.
This photograph in no ways does the meal justice. The chicken was tender and dish so very tasty. I always use free range chickens and would recommend you do the same. This ensures that your chicken has no added anti-biotics or growth hormones. They are fed a good diet that does not include fish meal. And there will be no brine injected into the meat. This is always the risk when you buy non free range birds, or frozen chicken. Also make sure you use the best quality olive oil and white wine when you cook this dish.
