The Best-Ever Chicken Cacciatore

I have been working on this recipe all week for you guys because it's one of my all-time favourites! It's so cosy and comforting during Winter without being heavy or rich. I love how the chicken cooks low and slow and basically falls apart in shreds at the end. It is SO good. This recipe serves four for a good dinner and my favourite way to enjoy it with a simple soft milk polenta.

To make the polenta, just heat 1 cup of milk per person in a saucepan and rain in 1/4 cup polenta per person, whisking constantly. Stop whisking after a minute or two and let it thicken for just a minute, then continue whisking until it's the same consistency as pancake batter. Remember to salt your polenta.

This chicken cacciatore really is the best ever, with a bucket-full of flavour and I swear it's the anchovies and pancetta that make it! And don't worry, you can't taste the anchovies, they are just there for a special little bit of saltiness, I promise!

So don't wait any longer, whip this up tonight! Happy cooking!
