“Want the taste of Chicken Cacciatore but don't have 2 hours to prep & cook? Me too! I tried this on my family & they LOVED IT. You can use whatever veggies you like, I just used what I had on hand. Would also be good with zucchini, squash and mushrooms. If I was cooking for just me & hubby I would have added garlic, but since mom doesn't like it and I love mom... you know... :) I served it with instant potatoes making it a super quick and easy meal!”
