This is a meal I had last week, chicken cacciatore with wild rice. I support Get Your Plate in Shape, it’s a wonderful way for folks to think about what they are eating and maybe make improvements for health if needed. I am a food blogger and avid home cook. As a family we travel a lot to many countries and this is reflected in my cooking, I think if you add global recipes to your repertoire it makes eating healthy, tasty meals fun and easy to do. With so many cuisines from around the globe its hard not to have something nutritious and exciting to cook.
The cacciatore is a classic Italian stew and I added extra vegetables, namely sweet potato and zucchini, it was served with wild rice for a change and it’s a whole grain. I love meals like this as a busy mum of two little ones as it’s a one-pot meal with leftovers for the next day.
