Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta, Vico Food Box

This isn’t traditional Chicken Cacciatore.

That would be made with a whole, cut-up chicken.

The traditional dish would not be served on pasta – or with pasta or risotto, as some recipes on the internet suggest.

Both pasta and risotto are, traditionally, first courses, not side dishes.

I should call this Chicken, Cacciatore-style…..

But I don’t want to.

This is an easy recipe for 2 with the flavors of Cacciatore.

Pasta, Chicken Cacciatore

For another non-traditional, but quick, easy, and delicious dish: Chicken Paprikash

I have, in the past, bemoaned the fact that, because I live in France, I have not been as lucky as U.S. based food bloggers receiving offers to try things.

I occasionally receive offers in my email to try a new barbecue sauce or review a new cook book.

These usually come from people who have not actually looked at my blog. When I reply that I live in France I don’t hear back.

Sometimes I’m contacted by people looking for European food bloggers – like me.

Such was the case when the lovely people at Vico Food Box asked if I would be interested in learning about them.


They asked if I would like to try some of their products.


On Friday, this box was delivered to my door:

Italian food shipped all over Europe (25 countries) for Italian food lovers.

It was extremely well-packed. (You may note all the dishes on my counter… I was in the middle of prep for a dinner party when the box arrive, but I had to open it. Curiosity and all).

I’ll post a description of everything and more details about Vico tomorrow.

This was just a teaser.

  1. I like this chicken with a cacciatore flare! And it’s less time consuming. 🙂

    The Vico box looks interesting and is that cheese I see? Can’t wait to read the next installment.

    We’re supposed to get 10 inches of snow in 5 hours late this afternoon and early evening. This will be interesting…

    • Smoked cheese – I’m exerting a lot of restraint to not cut into it. I may not last longer.
      10″ Wow ! I remember those storms – not often but wonderful as a child, horrible as an adult lol
