Quick Chicken Cacciatore Recipe

One night I was throwing dinner together and surprise, surprise! it tasted just like Chicken Cacciatore. And, it only took 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s a great weeknight dinner.

If you are like me, you rush, rush, rush in the morning to get breakfast cooked, lunches prepared, kids off to school, rush to work… that by the time you get home from work, exhaustion has set in. Sound familiar?

Rachel Ray had a true market with her 30 minute meals. For us working families, we don’t have all day to spend preparing for our weeknight meals. We need something quick and easy, but still healthy and fresh. A lot of my recipes fit into this category. And this recipe was born from me just trying to throw something together because I was too tired to do anything else. And it was easy. And it tasted really, really good.

I think Rachel Ray would approve of this recipe. Enjoy!

Note: this is pictured with Edamame noodles that I purchased at Costco. It’s a great alternative to standard wheat pasta and gives you ton of protein and fiber.
