This Pollo Alla Pugliese recipe works every time. A Puglian (heel of Italy) take on Chicken Cacciatore (Hunter’s Chicken). Perfectly suited to a falling oven at a temperature of 200 – 250°C this one is a crowd pleaser for family and dinner guests alike.
Mix it all up in a bowl, refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes (longer if possible), cook it for half an hour, turn the ingredients and cook it for another half an hour.
Serve with crusty bread, a gentle red and some salad on the side.
Strap yourselves in. This one’s a dinger!
If you want even softer chicken, place a pan full of water next to it in the oven to prevent the chicken from drying out too much.
In this instance, I used chicken, but this recipe can also be made with turkey, or how about enhancing the flavour with a leg of lamb.
Pugliese-style chicken can be kept in the fridge for up to two days. You can reheat it in the oven.
