Chicken Cacciatore Skewers

chicken cacciatore skewersRemember last week when I told you I had another creation up my sleeve for the Ragú New Tra-Dish campaign? Here it is! Chicken Cacciatore Skewers. Did you know that cacciatore in Italian means “hunter”? In Italy, cacciatore is made with ingredients such as meat, onions, tomatoes and herbs. I used Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce to turn this traditional Italian dish into a flavorful appetizer. Onions and mushrooms are cooked in a skillet, then they are mixed into the sauce and brushed over grilled chicken skewers. I sprinkled some oregano over the top for extra flavor and a finished look.

In case you missed my last post reviewing Ragú, here is more about Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce.


Each jar of Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is made with 11 tomatoes, so it is incredibly thick! This sauce has an authentic Italian taste, and goes great with your favorite Italian-style recipes. For more quick and easy recipe ideas using Ragú sauces, visit their Facebook page:
