FAQs

What is Chicken Cacciatore?

Cacciatore word means hunter, and food prepared alla cacciatora refers to a “hunter-style” dish with onions, herbs, tomatoes, and bell peppers.

Benefits of Cooking in an Instant Pot

Pressure cooking allows the boiling point of the liquid to be higher, and the food in turn cooks faster at a higher temperature. It also retains the flavors and nutrients of the food while also keeping the food moist.
