Is chicken cacciatore gluten-free?
Chicken cacciatore is a classic Italian dish you can make with chicken or pork. Since this dish is made with chicken, vegetables, herbs and spices, it is considered gluten-free.
If you are using canned tomatoes and store-bought broth, be sure to check that they are gluten-free.
Why add roasted tomatoes?
Adding roasted tomatoes to your chicken cacciatore recipe gives it a depth of flavor that can’t be beat. The sweetness of the tomatoes counteracts the savory spices, which are a great way to jazz up a tomato-based sauce.
