Manhattan Chicken Cacciatore

Manhattan Chicken Cacciatore

I took a classic Italian comfort recipe and kicked it up an health notch by adding my favorite secret ingredient: TURMERIC! Yes – Superfood Turmeric blends perfectly with the wine, tomatoes, chicken juices to give an added depth of flavor and an anti-inflammatory boost. I also added in a blend of shiitake and cremini mushrooms . I call this kicked-up-a- notch, but still super-easy-lazy-girl dinner-party-perfect recipe, my ‘Manhattan’ chicken cacciatore! Yes, this braised chicken dish is great for dinner parties and weekend family dinners. AND…it’s all the better if you make it a day ahead and let it sit overnight for all the flavors to soak in.

Further Food Commentary:

This recipe is not only a good source of lean protein, but is also rich in antioxidants. Peppers and tomatoes are full of carotenoids, including beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin, that are potent cancer fighters. Turmeric's antioxidant curcumin is also great at warding off oxidative stress, inflammation and disease, but is hard for the body to absorb. Pairing it with black pepper and healthy fats, like in this recipe, increases absorption dramatically.
