The Main Ingredients Spring Edition: Slow-Cooking Challenge (Chef's Meal)

For my first course, I'm going with a classic hunter's style chicken with a few of my own twists. Many different cultures make this style of chicken and the most celebrated are probably chicken Cacciatore from Italy, and chicken Chasseur from France. The beauty of slow cooking is the intricate flavours and layers are developed by the gentle cooking process itself, rather than a lot of effort on the cook's part.

The Main Ingredients Holiday Challenge: Holiday Potluck (Challenger's Meal)

I'm pretty fortunate to have a broad list of contacts available to me, and among them is celebrity chef Christian Pritchard. When I was at a loss for how to pull off this challenge, I reached out to him and he quickly called me while he was in between shows at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. Within only a few minutes we hammered out the framework for a dish, which I continued building out until I eventually came up with the following recipe. Enjoy!
