Chicken Cacciatore

This recipe is great for using up your leftovers. I didn't have to buy anything for this dish, as I had everything on hand. This is so easy and delicious.

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into strips

  • flour

  • cooking spray

  • salt and pepper

  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into strips

  • 6 ounces mushrooms cut into pieces

  • 2 Tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 1 16 ounce can tomato sauce

  • 1/4 cup of water

  • 1 Tablespoon of each: fresh Basil, Oregano and Parsley, chopped into small pieces

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Heat a large skillet. Coat chicken strips with flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Spray skillet with cooking spray and brown chicken on all sides, approx 5 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate, respray, and add in onions on medium heat. Salt and pepper them. Cook for 5 minutes, lower heat to medium low and add in mushrooms and garlic. Stir for 1 minute then add in tomato sauce, 1/4 water, spices and red pepper flakes. Cover and simmer on low for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over wheat pasta, or plain. This is very good, I ate a good amount of it!
