Chicken Cacciatore

Beth Pierce


This Chicken Cacciatore Recipe is lightly breaded chicken breasts with tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and garlic in a simple blend of Italian spices. It is an easy dish to prepare and includes options for both stove top and baking. Both are equally delicious albeit different in both finished product and time.
