How To Make chicken cacciatore low cal

  • 1
    Trim fat off the chicken thighs. Mix the dried herbs together (next 7 ingredients) and season both sides of the chicken thighs. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Place the thighs in pan and cook for 4-5 minutes (depending on the size of the thighs). Using tongs, flip over the thighs.

    Add the fresh veggies (next 4 ingredients), and sprinkle with remaining herbs and spices,cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add 1 cup of water, stir, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove lid, using a spoon, separate chicken thighs into smaller pieces (they should just fall apart), stir to make sure all veggies are cooked through. If you like a thinner sauce, add the rest of the water, if you don't, omit it.

    Dish up over starch of your choice. I used Dreamfields pasta, and grated a bit of parmesan cheese atop...warm, satisfying, and very tasty! Enjoy! <3
