We are well into October, and I am noticing the yellow leaf piles adorning the still-green grass everywhere. The air is crisper in the mornings. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes are starting to make appearances on neighbors’ porches.
It’s time for fall flower pots and cute little scarecrows. And plenty of fall flavors.
We’ve yet to go pick our family pumpkins – one for each child to put on display. I may be lagging in my fall decor, but we’re up to speed with the edibles.
I like to mix up the sweet with the savory for every season. Our kitchen has been teeming with fall sweets (more on the way), but how about this rustic Chicken Cacciatore for a perfect cool-weather meal?
We always enjoy the rustic flavors of many Italian main dishes, and this Chicken Cacciatore does not disappoint. My past experiences with chicken cacciatore were mediocre versions, and subsequently, it was never on the top of my restaurant-ordering list.
This Chicken Cacciatore, however, is divine. I was blown away by the huge depth of flavor. By the perfect balance between savory, tanginess, and slight sweetness. The chicken is juicy and tender, basking in the richly flavorful broth.
This is the perfect fall dinner. It’s easy enough for a family weeknight meal, yet impressive enough for weekend dinner guests. Make it gluten-free by using rice or tapioca flour.
