Ragú Chicken Cacciatore Soup

Ragú Chicken Cacciatore Soup

I have had the opportunity to partner with Ragú to cook up some Italian dishes.  As part of the “New Tra-Dish” project I was asked to select two of the Ragú Authentic Italian Recipes and create my own spin on them.  For my first, I turned Skillet Chicken Cacciatore into Chicken Cacciatore Soup.  You can also check out my second “New Tra-Dish” recipe: Eggplant Parmesan Lasagna.

This soup is reminiscent of a minestrone soup but instead of using a tomato base I used Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce.  As in chicken cacciatore {hunter-style chicken} this chicken is combined with bell peppers and mushrooms, and the sauce turned broth is made heartier with some more seasonings and red wine.  The soup is extremely easy and can even be made in a slow-cooker or Crockpot if that works better for you.
