How to Make Chicken Cacciatore Stew
1Heat large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil.
2Season chicken pieces with salt & pepper. Once skillet is hot, add chicken pieces a few at a time, brown well on all sides & remove. Continue until all chicken is browned & set aside.
3Using the same skillet, saute onions & peppers for 3 to 5 minutes, scraping up brown bits.
4Add chicken back to skillet & stir in the Cacciatore Simmer Sauce. Bring to a simmer & stir in dry pasta.
5Cover & cook over low heat until chicken is cooked to a safe internal temperature of 165 degrees & pasta is tender.
6Transfer to serving bowl or individual plates & garnish with parmesan cheese.
7Refrigerate any leftovers.
