History of National Chicken Cacciatore Day
The history and origin of the National Chicken Cacciatore Day are unknown. It is an Italian cuisine that emerged during the Renaissance period. Cacciatore is an Italian word that means hunter. In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal cooked in hunter-style with onions, and herbs served over spaghetti, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and at times wine. Cacciatore is usually made with braised chicken (Pollo alla Cacciatora) or rabbit (Coniglio alla Cacciatora).
The garlic and pepper are seasoned with salamino cacciatore, a short salami. Chicken Cacciatore is made with chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and herbs served over spaghetti. Originally Chicken Cacciatore did not contain tomatoes or tomato sauce. More traditionally usage includes the dark meat, and not the white meat, as it contains fatter. It helps in making a thicker, tastier sauce when cooked than the lean chicken breast.
