Susan’s Simple Chicken Capraro (Cacciatore)

This recipe was inspired by Richard’s "Uncle" Charlie Capraro. Charlie is a good friend of Richard’s parents. After he moved to California he would visit the Kretchmers in New Jersey each summer for a week. Whenever he did he would cook up a big pot of Chicken Capraro/Cacciatore. It was always delicious. Although my family is Italian, this was not a dish I grew up with. However, after one of Charlie’s fabulous feasts, I decided to try to make it on my own, just by remembering the flavors and trying to imitate them. Although I eliminated the anchovies, I think this is pretty close to Charlie’s version. It is easy to make and takes care of itself once it is all in the pot.


  • olive oil
  • onion, chopped
  • red bell pepper, cut into small slices
