Pollo alla cacciatora, Nigella Express

I could not for the life of me remember if I’d already cooked this. There were no food stains on the recipe’s page to suggest that I had but preparing this had a slight feel of deja vu about it.

Very easy again (as the cookbook’s title suggests). It consists of chicken, pancetta, spring onions (Nigella is obsessed with these things), rosemary, white wine, tomatoes and celery salt. My advice – if you need to substitue anything in this recipe, do so to your heart’s content, but you must use celery salt – this is what provides the dish with a depth of flavour.

We didn’t have any cannellini beans but because she states ‘optional’ we used butter beans instead.

My husband ate this with rice, I had it on its own. We also had enough for leftovers and had the rest for lunch the next day. It’s perfect for UK ‘summer’ weather. Keep warm and dry people!
