Quick and Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Green peppers, onions, and tomato sauce work together to create a surprisingly sweet and incredibly delicious chicken dish. If you want double-down on the veggies, your tastebuds would not be disappointed. Serve with a little brown rice to sop up all that saucy goodness.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • ⅓ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Coat large skillet with cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned on all sides, turning as needed (2-3 minutes per side).
  2. Add pepper, onion, and mushrooms to the pan. Sauté until just browned (3-4 minutes).
  3. Stir in tomatoes, water, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the largest piece of chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165ºF (15-20 minutes).
  4. Remove chicken from skillet, set aside, and cover to keep warm. Continue to simmer sauce, uncovered, until thickened (4-6 minutes).
  5. Top chicken with sauce to serve.
