CHICKEN CACCIATORE RECIPE with Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry

CHICKEN CACCIATORE RECIPE NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

As the weather gets colder, I crave hearty, stew like dishes. Chicken Cacciatore is the perfect rustic poultry-vegetable ‘hunter’s stew.’ Making chicken cacciatore is super easy and it pairs great with rice, grains or pasta. And I love that it is filled with lots of delicious heirloom tomatoes. For this recipe, we’ve partnered with Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry (@fraservalleyspecialtypoultry), Buy BC (@eatdrinkbuybc) and Chef Clement Chan  of Torafuku (@clementkitchan) on a very special project called Cook Poultry Like A Pro.” #cookpoultrylikeapro #buybc

 

The key concept to the “Cook Poultry Like A Pro” is to raise awareness to support Buy BC Poultry For Freshness & Quality, Like the Pros Do! There are many benefits of buying high quality ethically and sustainably raised products that are raised locally here in British Columbia. “This province-wide networking event brings together chefs, farmers and food producers from across British Columbia to create more opportunities to bring BC food to plates around the province.” Not only are you buying fresh, in-season products but you are also supporting BC’s agriculture sector! #EatDrinkLocal #BuyBC #BCTastesBetter


Italian Chicken Cacciatore Recipe with Asian Fusion flavours NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

The “Cook Poultry Like A Pro” project includes five dishes that were created by five different local celebrity chefs. Four food bloggers, like myself, will recreate these dishes at home. For this project, I choose the Chicken Cacciatore recipe from Clement Chan because I love his incorporation of Asian flavours in this classic rustic Italian dish. Something I often do when I’m at home too!

When it comes to grocery shopping, we usually don’t like stocking more than 2 day’s worth. I love shopping at local farmers market and when it comes to poultry, I highly recommend Buy BC Poultry for freshness and quality, like the pros do! Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry are organic and raised without the use of antibiotics. The products are also available at The Farm Store in Chilliwack and at the following locations listed on their website.

Sometimes when you order Chicken Cacciatore at restaurants, a lot of times it tends to have an overly sweet sauce with a overcooked piece of chicken. For Clement’s Hunter’s Stew we used both chicken leg quarters (bone-in) and full chicken wings. This is perfect because I’m a dark meat kind of girl and definitely a wings fan! The use of thighs will give this dish the needed juiciness.

After I removed the legs quarters and wings, I saved the remaining meat cuts and carcass to make a pot of nourishing Chinese soup.

To make the brine, in a small pot, toast coriander and cumin until fragrant. Add water, salt, sugar and bay leaf and bring up to a simmer. Strain the brine to a container and add ice so the brining water cools down and doesn’t cook the chicken when you place the chicken into the liquid. Allow the chicken to marinade for 2 hours in the fridge.

Meanwhile the chicken is being marinated, rough chop your vegetables. This is rustic cooking. I love that you don’t have to worry about size or anything else. Chicken Cacciatore in Northern Italy includes onions, carrots and celery. In the South, anchovies, olives and chili peppers are often used. Clement Chan version, incorporates bonito flakes, dashi, yuzu peel and also uses sake to deglaze the pan.
