Chicken So Fancy Iggy Azalea Wishes She Made It

Some nights there’s just nothing to do. You’ve watched so much Netflix your eyes are bloodshot. Your neighborhood’s nightlife is a snooze fest. There’s no way you’re touching your homework, and somehow doing chores sounds worse than Taylor Swift without auto tune. Those are the nights that are perfect for trying out more difficult recipes like this one: Chicken Cacciatore or simply “Hunter’s Chicken.” The Italians call it “Pollo Alla Cacciatora” because cacciatora means “hunter,” and this recipe has mushrooms and other vegetables that hunters used to find while hunting in the woods.

Impress your roommates, please your mother and spoil yourself with this challenging recipe that’ll be completely worth the effort.

5. Add tomatoes, wine and beef stock. Boil for 3 or 4 minutes (turn up heat, if needed). Add flour to mixture and stir to combine for 2 or 3 minutes. Turn down heat, return chicken to pan and spoon some of the mixture over it to keep it moist.
