Delicious Chicken Cacciatore #FallforFlavor

Chicken Cacciatore recipe

Delicious Chicken CacciatoreI have cooked chicken about a thousand different ways and my favorites tend to be those that keep the chicken the juiciest.  This dish has succulent chicken that’s cooked in Mezzetta Pasta Sauce alongside Onions, Bell Peppers, Chicken Broth and Kalamata Olives.  The tastes dance together and the olives give a bit of salt.  The taste is on another level than what you’d expect, but it has the flavor of something out of an expensive restaurant.  The dish is simple to prepare and tastes amazing.

    Growing up in an Italian household, we ate this a lot. My kids are fussy and don’t love it, but I make it every once in a while.

    First, I am jealous that you have a Trader Joes in your city. This looks so good. I’m doing a low carb way of eating and this looks like it may fit my menu. I’ll have to see how many carbs the sauce has but it looks good.

    Wow, this really looks like a delicious meal for the family to share. It’s great to be eaten with rice because I’m sure that the marinara pasta sauce is super tasty. I like that you added dry white wine to add to the flavor. Yellow onions and garlic are other spices that will surely stand out as well.

    If I cook something like this, my family will just faint from surprise. Hahaha. It does look pretty simple to make but it looks like you exerted a lot of effort. I like cooking food like this. It’s like effortless but people go oooohhhh and aaaahhhh. 🙂
