    The history of this dish begins in the Renaissance, and this is approximately 1450-1600. It was then that cacciatore began to appear on the tables of the inhabitants of the Apennine Peninsula. Cacciatore is hunting chicken. True, one should not immediately think that this dish was prepared on the hunt. Not at all, cacciatore is a homemade dish. The fact is that at that time ordinary people did not have the right to hunt, so they came up with such a dish in the hunting style, but not from game, but from poultry meat, which, however, did not reduce its taste.

    There are a lot of interpretations of this dish throughout Italy. For example, in Northern Italy, cacciatore is often prepared with white wine, while in Southern Italy, on the contrary, there are recipes with red wine. There are options for cacciatore with mushrooms, with anchovies, olives and much more, including tomatoes, as we have today. Various sources indicate that chicken, olive oil, and garlic are essential ingredients in cacciatore. Everything else is optional.
