Google+ Cave Food Kitchen: Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore

Unfortunately, cooking was no really an option this week, since I broke my collarbone a week ago. Luckily,
it was a "nice break" according to the doctor, so things should heal in about 4 weeks.

This however, was a perfect excuse to try out the newest gadget in the CaveFood Kitchen; the Philips HomeCooker. This will be the helping hand in any kitchen, so perfect for me! It's pretty much a type of slowcooker and kitchen machine in 1, since this appliance comes with it as well.

The good thing about it is, that you can throw in the ingredients, set a timer and temperature, and the homecooker does the work for you. It stirs, steams, cooks, boils, all of it!
Some of the recipes that came with it looked really nice, so let's start cooking straight away!

Ingredients

boneless chicken (1 kg or 2lbs)
500 ml of Chianti wine
20 black olives, sliced
3 garlic cloves
salt & pepper
1 tsp of ground fennel seeds
1 tsp rosemary needles
2 cans of diced tomatoes
3 anchovy fillets
coconut oil



Cut the chicken into pieces and put it in a bowl, together with the wine, garlic, fennel seeds
& rosemary.
Let this marinate for about 1 hour. The next steps depend a little on what type of device you'll use.
