Dutch Oven Cooking 

Dutch Oven Cooking 

Administration 

Nov 25

This is a recipe I came across in Readers Digest (UK Version) courtesy of Nigella Lawson.  She called it “Polla Alla Cacciatora” meaning “chicken cooked the hunter’s way”.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon garlic oil
  • 1/2 cup pancetta cubes
  • 6 scallions, finely sliced
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 pound chicken thigh fillets, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 (14-ounce) can cannellini beans, optional

Method

  1. Put the garlic oil into a pan with the pancetta, sliced scallions and chopped rosemary and fry for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add the bite-sized chicken pieces, stirring well, and sprinkle in the celery salt.
  3. Pour in the wine and let it come to a bubble before adding the tomatoes, bay leaves and sugar. Put the lid on and let the pan simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Drain and add a tin of cannellini beans and when they have warmed through too, you are ready to eat.

    We made this on the Mountain Biking trip to Harris Lake County Park. With three large chicken breasts, it served three. I would recommend doubling the other ingredients if serving 4-6.

    Perhaps also serve with baked potatoes to make it go further.

    This was the recipe that won the 2012 Orange District leaders Dutch oven cook-off!
