This Thermomix Chicken Cacciatore recipe is absolutely fantastic! Best thing to do while it's cooking is to relax on the couch with a book and enjoy the beautiful smell that will fill up the room after a few minutes... well, this would be the best way, but it isn't always possible, is it?
Most times there is someone to bath, clothes to fold and put away or some poem to listen to (children sometimes have to learn poems by heart for school): thank God for my Thermie!
If there's no doubt about this recipe being Italian, it's not very clear what region of Italy it comes from, and that's probably why we have a few versions of this dish: with olives, with anchovies, with bay-leaf, with rosemary... as always, creativity is the key!
The recipe I want to share is the only one I know well enough and it's from Tuscany. I've seen this dish cooked thousands of times by my mum and granny and I'm very attached to it.
It always amazes me how a few simple ingredients can create such a feast of flavours, and don't forget to serve it with bread, so you can make a scarpetta. Oh, you don't know what scarpetta is? It's when you dip fresh bread in the left over sauce until your plate is squicky clean - I highly recommend it!

Ingredients- 1 clove of Garlic
- 1/2 Onion
- 1 Carrot, chopped
- 1 Celery stick, chopped
- Rosemary to taste
- Extravergin Olive Oil to taste
- Chicken, chopped up into main parts: legs, wings, back, neck and white
- 1 measuring cup of Red Wine
- 300 gr Canned Tomatoes
- Salt to taste
Let's make our Chicken CacciatorePlace garlic, onion, carrot, celery and rosemary in the bowl 10 Sec. Speed 4.
Pour oil and saute 3 Min. 100° Speed 1.
Add chicken and start browning 4 Min. Temp. Varoma Speed Soft Reverse. Remember to add the wine after 2 Min.
Add Tomatoes, adjust salt, keep cooking the chicken. 20 Min. 100° Speed Soft Reverse.
My AdviceIf you like your sauce thicker, drain the tomatoes before putting them in, but make sure it doesn't dry out. If that happens, add half a measuring cup of water.
If you want it a little lighter you can take off the chicken skin, but it will have a lot less flavour.
Add black olives when saute chicken for extra taste.
