Mexican Style Chicken Cacciatore

“This came from an idea to use up left-over baked chicken. I adapted my favorite Italian Cacciatore recipe and the results were wonderful, so said my family. So I worked it a bit so it could be made from the start. This is now in my regular rotation. Play around with the spices until it suits you! This can be made with any type of chicken, with or without bones. And, of course, if using leftover baked chicken go to step 3 where veggies are added.”
