One-Pan Chicken Cacciatore

One-Pan Chicken Cacciatore
Easy Recipe

Serves 4

  • 4 to 6 Smart Chicken thighs
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 small shallots, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2½ cups diced heirloom tomatoes or whole cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup red wine
  • ¼ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped

Season each chicken thigh with kosher salt and black pepper. Preheat the oven to 400°F. To an oven-safe pan over medium-high heat, add the canola oil. Sear both sides of the chicken until light golden-brown. Remove the chicken and set aside.

To the pan, add the shallots, garlic, and capers and sauté for about 5 minutes. Deglaze with the tomatoes and red wine. Roast the chicken, skin-side up, in the oven for 35 minutes. If the skin isn't golden-brown or crispy enough, set the oven to broil for a few minutes, until crispy. (Be sure to watch chicken under the broiler closely, as it can burn quickly.) Add the fresh basil and serve.
