Chicken Cacciatore For Dogs and People To Share

The last recipe in our retro series this month is probably a dish that you have had many times!  Chicken Cacciatore is Italian for “hunter”.  In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and sometimes wine.  Well, a lot of these traditional ingredients are of course bad or even dangerous for dogs. So we made a version that was not only dog friendly, but one that you can share.  For the persons, we do recommend adding some salt and pepper to your plate, and maybe even a glass of vino!  Your dog can have a bowl of the finest water!
