CHICKEN CACCIATORE RECIPE with Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry

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!

 

Meet The Five Celebrity Chef Recipes

 

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.

Follow along our recipe below and also entered the online contest and vote for The Recipe You Want to Challenge the Most.

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.

 

CHICKEN CACCIATORE RECIPE NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

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.

Fold in canned tomatoes, fresh heirloom tomatoes and jubilee cherry tomatoes. Add in peppers, mushrooms and organic baby carrots.

ACTIFRY BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH GARLIC CHILI RECIPE

ACTIFRY BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH GARLIC CHILI RECIPE

Raise your hand if you love roasted Brussel sprouts? I am so excited that Brussel sprouts season has officially arrived! I love it even more that I comes around the time of Thanksgiving! It goes great with a fat turkey wrapped in bacon(!) or simply on its own. I love them on shredded on pizzas, pastas and even on salads. They are super quick and simple to make and you can choose your favourite seasonings to customize it. I usually roast my Brussel sprouts with salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. It is such a classic recipe.

We recently got a T-fal Actifry air fryer. So if any of you are looking for ways to cook healthier with less oil, I high recommend this little machine! This little kitchen appliance is pretty versatile and come make a whole range of delicious recipes like chicken wings, curries, stir fry, etc. – guilt free.

 

TFAL ACTIFRY AIR FRYER NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

TFAL ACTIFRY AIR FRYER NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

T-fal’s Actifry is pretty easy to use and you don’t need to read the instruction manual. Set your timer and press the “On” button.

 

The classic Brussel sprouts recipe with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper is dead easy to make. It is a healthy, gluten free dish that everyone will fight over. Prepping these little cabbages takes no time – 5 minutes tops. Wash. Slice in half length-wise, season and toss in olive oil. To make garlic chili Brussel sprouts, all you need to do is take 4-6 cloves of garlic (minced. I also like to have some that are sliced for extra bite) and a tablespoon of chili oil in place of olive oil. It is the BEST spicy Brussel sprouts ever!
