These flavor packed Easy Cacciatore Chicken Breasts are simple to prepare—and simply delicious! Ready in 30 minutes or less.
Chicken is one of my favorite things to cook because it’s something the whole family will eat, it’s extremely versatile, and it’s pretty affordable. Plus, I always have chicken on hand. When it comes to chicken I prefer breasts, especially when I’m trying to put dinner on the table under 30 minutes.
Oh yeah… I ♡ relying on 30-minute meals!!
And these Easy Cacciatore Chicken Breasts recipe really fulfill all my expectations. It’s delicious, full of flavor, and hearty.
In case you are wondering, Cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, tomatoes, bell peppers, and wine. This recipe reminded me of my mom’s “pollo guisado”. It’s exactly like this chicken. It has the same taste and same look. The only two differences that I found between this recipe and my mom’s are that she use fresh onions and green olives instead of Kalamata olives.
As you know I love to save time when cooking that is why I used Hunt’s diced tomatoes, which are 100% natural—with no artificial preservatives. Hunt’s tomatoes are perfect for creating easy and delicious comfort meals for busy family. No stress, No fuss.
I loved all the vegetables in this dish! Mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. I also used lots of garlic. What can I say? I’m a garlic lover and I think that garlic enhance the flavors.
If you are a garlic lover like me here I share my little secret to get rid of the smell! To remove the garlic smell off your hands just rinse with cold water and rub your fingers over something made of stainless steel, like a spoon, sink, the faucet. I always use a spoon and works all the time.
