Cacciatore (Italian for “hunter”) is a classic dish typically made with tomatoes, onions, peppers and mushrooms. The mushrooms add a nice earthy flavor, but the recipe is just as good without them. Or, for a dinner subterfuge, soak some dried porcini and replace the water in the recipe with some of the soaking liquid. Don’t tell your kids.More Fast Italian Recipes from Grace Parisi

  • Add the onion, garlic, mushrooms and rosemary to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste. Add the pureed tomatoes and 1/4 cup of water. Add the chicken and any juices and bring to a boil.

  • Cover partially and simmer over moderately low heat until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and serve with crusty bread.

Suggested Pairing
