30-minute Chicken Cacciatore

This simplified version of the classic Italian hunter-style stew is made for weeknight cooking.  Serves 6.


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 pounds chicken thighs, boneless

salt and pepper, to taste

8 ounces brown mushrooms, quartered

¾ teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped

½ cup red wine, such as Chianti

1 24-ounce jar Tomato Basil Family Size Sauce

¼ teaspoon hot pepper flakes (optional)


In a large high-rimmed saucepan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to pan. Brown on all sides, about 6-8 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and place on a large plate, set aside.

Turn heat down to medium. Add mushrooms and rosemary, sauté until mushrooms start to caramelize, about  3-5 minutes. Add wine and cook for another 3-4 minutes, making sure to scrape up all the bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.  

Stir in tomato sauce and pepper flakes. Nestle chicken back in pan. Turn heat down to low, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Serve over pasta or soft polenta.


Family Size Sauces from Rustichella d'Abruzzo


Finally, our favorite Rustichella d'Abruzzo tomato sauces are availble in a 24oz "family size." This new size comes in three fabulous flavors, Tomato & Basil, Arrabbiata and Olive.  Rustichella d’Abruzzo has long been our favorite Italian jarred tomato sauce. Elegant, simple, clean – their sauces emphasize the quality of core ingredients (vine ripe, fresh Italian tomatoes and good extra virgin olive oil).  Upon tasting the Tomato & Basil straight out of the jar one of our staff members exclaimed, "This is just like my Italian grandmother used to make."

We love the new larger format of these rich, velvety sauces – perfect for entertaining a hungry crowd. Whether it’s an impromptu potluck invitation, slumber party or family gathering, sometimes a big jar of good tomato sauce can save the day.  

•    Tomato and Basil: a perfect pairing for any pasta. In addition to tomato pulp (88%) and extra virgin olive oil, a whisper of basil, onion and carrot delivers complexity to its deep tomato flavor. Doubles as the perfect lasagna layer.

•    Arrabbiata (Spicy): Meaning “angry” in Italian, this spicy tomato sauce gets a savory boost from crushed red chili peppers, garlic and onion. Best with hearty long cuts like bucatini, fettucine and chitarra.

•    Olive: Whole black olives bring toothy texture and a delicate olive pungency to this delicious tomato sauce. We love it on pizza, or stirred throughout a casserole of whole wheat penne pasta.
