Chicken Cacciatore

If you try this recipe for family dinner, by the end everyone will be calling you a chef. Yes, we recommend cutting up your own whole chicken, but feel free to get a precut chicken to save some time! While this recipe says 1 clove of garlic…we won’t tell if you use 3-4. If there is a such a thing as “too much garlic” we haven’t found it yet. Serve with rice or pasta to round the dish out!


  • 1 whole chicken, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups canned tomato
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf



Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet. Coat chicken pieces with the all purpose flour and place them in the skillet. Fry until they are brown on both sides. Remove chicken.


Add the onions and garlic, saute until tender. Combine with the remaining ingredients and return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.


Remove cover and cook, turning the chicken occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is tender and the sauce is thick. Remove the bay leaf and discard it. Serve with rice or pasta.
