Frozen vs Fresh Chicken
The nice thing about this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen chicken. I usually have frozen ones on hand but if you want to use fresh just reduce the cooking time to a total of four to five hours.
What to Serve with Chicken Cacciatore
It's pretty delicious all on its own but there are a few ways you can serve it:
  • I love to serve it with rice! I just cook some up before dinner and then pile the chicken cacciatore on top.
  • Or you can add some cooked pasta  - top it with some grated Parmesan cheese and parsley!
  • It's great with mashed potatoes, too!
  • Or add some homemade breadsticks on the side so soak up all the sauce.
