How to Cook Chicken Cacciatore and Shirataki Noodles

This is a recipe for a delicious Chicken Cacciatore. This version of the recipe has shirataki noodles as the pasta. You should get the spaghetti shaped noodles. The reason for using shirataki instead of your traditional pasta is because they have zero calories and can aid in weight loss.

Ingredients

  • Shirataki Noodles - Depending on your appetite. We usually make about 1 pound(16 ounces). I would use the spaghetti shaped noodles.
  • 1 lbs of skinless chicken breasts and 1- 2 lbs of chicken parts thighs, legs etc
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup of red wine(or slightly more if you want it to be sweet)
  • Fresh Basil
  • Olive oil
  • 2 cans of tomatoes
  • 1 bottle of red wine vinegar

    Fry the chicken pieces until they are browned in the red wine vinegar and remove from the frying pan. This part can get tricky. You do not want to use to much of the vinegar at a time, but it evaporates fast so be on guard.

    Add the chicken and let cook on low heat for 2-4 hours. The reason I let it cook this long is to allow for the chicken to soften and the sauce to really get all of the flavors.

    Note: This dish has a very long cook time. Frying the chicken parts takes a lot longer than you would imagine since you are doing it in red wine vinegar. This is one of my families favorite recipes and I have personally cooked this a hundred times.

Tips

  • This dish takes a long time to cook. The frying of the chicken in the red wine vinegar takes a surprising amount of time. Please give yourself a few hours of cook time before serving.
  • This dish tastes just as good with regular pasta. I like shirataki as a healthy option to save carbs and calories.

Warnings

  • Do not overcook the shirataki noodles. They will taste rubbery.
  • Remember you are just browning the chicken. Do not cook them completely.
