Quick Chicken Cacciatora

I’ve been watching Nigella Express on the cooking channel recently.  I absolutely love her british accent!  She makes everything sound so delicious.  I’m always looking for new ways to prepate chicken so I decided to adapt one of her recipes over the weekend.  The result was a quick and good tasting hearty chicken dish with lots of italian flavor.


2 cloves of garlic

1 T olive oil

4-5 strips of thick cut bacon

5 large scallions finely sliced

1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary

2 large chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces

1/2 tsp celery salt

1/2 c white wine

14 oz can diced tomatoes

2 bay leaves

1/2 tsp sugar

14 oz can cannellini beans drained and rinsed

salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat and add your garlic, rosemary and bacon.  Fry for about 5 minutes then add your chicken and celery salt.  Stir well and cook for about 5 minutes.  Pour in wine and let it come to a boil.  Continue to cook for 2 minutes and then add the bay leaves, sugar and tomatoes.  Turn the heat to a simmer and cook covered for about 20 minutes.  Add your beans and cook another 5 minutes until beans are heated through.
