Easy Chicken Cacciatore

As the flower buds begin to bloom and warmer weather peeks through the horizon, my menu plan reflects the change of season. I use the oven less, the grill and stove top more and begin to incorporate more and more fresh veggies into my meals.

I’m always looking to create quick and healthy options that the whole family enjoys and this Speedy Chicken Cacciatore hits on all of them.

During my 17 Day Diet, I focused on creating many chicken dishes, particularly ones that were hearty, full of veggies, low carb and packed with flavor. I wanted to put a slightly different twist on the original, which can typically be much higher in calories. I love this option because there’s a lot of versatility with the seasonings and vegetables. While I incorporated ones that we already had on hand, feel free to omit or substitute some of your favorites. When I am going low carb, I don’t want to be stuck making two different meals, so this was perfect. For the kids, I served it over pasta, but I ate the chicken, sauce and veggie mixture, which was delicious. It can easily be served over rice, as well.

While there’s nothing like homemade pasta sauce with garden fresh tomatoes, it’s rare that I ever make it any more because the store bought options make for an incredibly easy and delicious meal.

This delicious and easy Chicken Cacciatore brings the restaurant taste to your kitchen table in minutes.

Put this on your upcoming meal plan, and while you are chopping up those veggies, make extra. This is a delicious C.O.S.T. Cooking meal for later in the week.
