Spicy Chicken Cacciatore
Although this Italian standard has suffered at the hands of lesser chefs, Barbara Lynch redeems it. She ably deconstructs what is often a heavy sauce into its vivid components: bright red strips of bell pepper, sweet slices of onion, hot pickled peppers and fresh chopped tomatoes.More Italian Main Dishes
Cacciatore-style dishes exist all over Italy, as does the Sangiovese grape. Conveniently, the two also pair very well— Sangiovese's bright cherry fruit and slight spiciness go with rustic poultry dishes like this one. There are some great inexpensive bottlings, too.
