New This Month

Few dishes are more evocative of autumn than this Italian specialty -- a fragrant stew of chicken, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Our version gains extra depth from cooking the chicken and its skin separately. Cacciatore means "hunter-style," calling to mind a woodsman's sack filled with game and gathered herbs -- all destined for a stockpot.

Cook's Notes

In step 3, be sure not to overcrowd the pot, since the meat will steam. For ideal results, cook the chicken in batches.
