Y’all. You know when it’s mid-summer, sweltering, and all you want is
a salad good ol’ comfort food pretty much appropriate for February? Whew. I knew it wasn’t just me. See, we bond over so many things – SO glad we have each other. Welp, good news, my friends. This summer rendition of chicken cacciatore is just what the doctor ordered. Spruced up fresh corn and basil – it’s completely suitable for summer. Okay, more than suitable – totally summer worthy.
It literally doesn’t get any better than this. The crispy, golden-brown chicken thighs [i.e. juicy little nuggets that are pure gold] engulfed by a beauteous tomato sauce full of peppers, onions, corn, and fresh basil? Um, yes please. Oh, and you know, a healthy portion of wine. And I’m not talking to drink… I mean literally in the sauce. Well, to drink, too. Let’s be clear.
And as far as the sous chef goes, he’s all about this. Yummy, packed with flavor, and so satisfying. And just one pan to wash — the cherry on top [extra glass of wine is more relatable, but okay]. Not to mention, even good for you. Not a carb in sight, my friends. Okay, a couple. Mostly in the wine. A bit in the flour. But now you’re just nit picking.
MOVING RIGHT ALONG. Summer comfort food = the best. Can we make this a thing? Forget beach season, we have needs. MY STOMACH HAS NEEDS. And it includes more than wine. It definitely includes this chicken cacciatore.
