The pollo alla cacciatora is a simple and traditional dish prepared with some little differences in almost all the regions of Italy. The chicken is jointed into pieces and quickly pan-fried, then slowly stewed in a tasty tomato sauce. Rosemary, garlic and wine are essential to donate a characteristic flavour. Even if it’s possible braise the meat with white wine, I suggest red wine to make the taste of the sauce bold!
