Vegan Chicken Cacciatore

vegan chicken cacciatore


So I don’t peel my potatoes before I boil them nor do I wait for the water to boil first. I just cut my potatoes into same size chunks and drop into a large pot of cold water. Set over high heat and once the pot comes to a boil the potatoes should only take about 20 minutes – depending on the size of your chunks. You want them to be fork tender. When the potatoes are ready drain and set aside.

In the same pot over low heat add the butter and rice milk and cook until bubbly. Meanwhile take the skins off the potatoes, they should peel right off with a fork. Using a ricer press all the potatoes through into the butter mixture. Add the sour cream and season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

While your potatoes are going you can start on the cacciatore. Use a large sauté pan and heat the olive oil til it’s nice and hot. Add your chicken breasts and don’t move for 2 minutes. The chicken will stick if you move it around. Once there is a nice golden crispy crust go ahead and flip and sear the other side for 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Same pan add a little more olive oil if needed and all your veggies. Let them sauté for 10 minutes until they start to get tender but still have some crunch. Next add garlic and spices cook for 1 minute.

I use whole tomatoes for this recipe and crush them over the pot to break them apart. Slowly add red wine and simmer on med/low for 20 minutes. After the tomatoes break down and everything comes together you’ll have a nice thick sauce. Add the chicken and let just heat through for 2 minutes.

I like to serve this family style so scoop your potatoes into a nice big bowl and pour the cacciatore right over the top. Garnish with fresh basil and mangia!!
