Chicken cacciatore – Italian recipe


Also called “chicken hunter’s style”: famous in Italian restaurants all over the world and here in its original Milanese form! Find this and many more recipes on the Giallozafferano App in English


Hi GialloZafferano viewers and welcome to our kitchen. I’m Deborah and today we’ll be making a traditional Milanese main dish that’s very simple to prepare: Chicken Cacciatore. Let’s see what we’ll need:
• 1 2 and ½ pound chicken
• A bunch of parsley
• 1 clove of garlic
• 1 onion
• 2 carrots
• 3 ribs of celery • ½ cup of olive oil
• 14 oz of tinned peeled tomatoes
• A sprig of rosemary
• 1 cup of red wine
• Salt and pepper to taste.
OK, let’s prepare our chicken.
First of all, wash, dry and cut the chicken into pieces. Now, place the pieces in a pan of hot oil to brown off for at least 10 minutes.
Now, add to the chicken the diced onion and garlic, diced carrot and celery, the rosemary, a good pinch of salt, and the pepper. Let it cook for another 15 minutes.
After that add the red wine to the chicken. When it cooks off, it’s time to add the tomatoes cut into pieces. Cover it up and let it simmer on a low heat for at least a half an hour. If it starts to look dry, just add a bit of broth or water as needed.
After everything is cooked, add the minced parsley to finish and you’re ready to serve your chicken cacciatore. From GialloZafferano, buon appetito and see you next ti

  1. This is a lot closer to 'real' chicken cacciatore than most of the vids on youtube.  I'm sure it tastes delicious. The lady appears to be a good cook.  Thanks for the vid!

  2. Dry rosemary is alot more intense in flavour, just try this again with less rosemary and dont break it up as the flavour will just intensify, what we want is a light fresh hint of it 🙂

  3. I finally found a supermarket that sells fresh rosemary. I attempted this recipe several hours ago, and my dish ends up tasting too acidic (too many tomato, I think) & smelling like rosemary (too strong). Any solution?

  4. I tried 3 recipes form this channel and so far everything turns out excellent. My husband from Roma and he always cook for us, 1 day I made the cold pasta I learn from this channel and he said its amazing and remind him of home.

  5. making it for second time in 3 days,love it great recipe,my girlfriend is from longastrino in nothern italy,she living in uk now,but said it was amazing and reminded her of the real taste of italy,so thank u much loved by the whole family.

  6. that's exactly what you shouldnt do, italian food is simple and that's the secret. With good ingridients you can just give at your dish lot of flavours without seasoning too much. You need to taste and smell the rosemary in this recepe.

  7. very nice, very concise, very easy to follow tks for the post now I just need to cook it however I may add a few extra herbs as oregano, cumin, chilli powder, basil and thyme

  8. I already watched more than a dozen videos from this channel, and one thing I wanted to share, I am from a Italian immigrant family, and finally I'm learning more about Italian culinary. Thanks so much for that!

  9. @PABSTMAN138 'cause it's not the original recipe, the flavours of meat and vegetables should blend together… anyway, it doesn't come out bland or rubbery at all!

  10. I was wondering where you film these. Is it a cooking school of some sort or just somebody's kitchen? I think the recipes are very good and the production value is remarquable!
