Chicken Cacciatore made in the slow cooker is a staple around these parts. Largely due to the fact that I work 7 days a week, and when I get home, I don’t always want to cook. My slow cooker version will give us a good hearty supper one night, and the leftover sauce is generally used on pasta for the lunch the following day. I love meals that yield leftovers.
This time, I chose to switch it up and make it the old fashioned way; on the stove top. This flavorful chicken cacciatore is rich with tomatoes, herbs and wine and the chicken is wrapped in prosciutto (I tried to find Serrano Ham to use instead of prosciutto, but it was impossible to find a butcher or deli that sold it in town). The white wine will sweeten the sauce and add tremendous flavor. I must say, I will always add wine to my sauce now. It was that good. Even my boyfriend raved about it. I think I’m starting to enjoy cooking with wine just as much as I enjoy cooking with beer.
Whether you serve it with pasta, rice or on its own, it’s sure to be a hit.
