Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta Skillet Recipe

chicken and peppers

Whenever I run across a one dish meal recipe; I love it because it can save a lot of time in the kitchen. This Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta Skillet Recipe caught my eye and I had to give it a try. The recipe is lightly seasoned, and the whole dish is on the light side, and very good tasting. You could probably season it up a little more if you would like to, but I thought it was really good the way it is. The recipe calls for boneless chicken breast or thighs, I used the breast meat because that is what most the family likes. Personally I think the dark meat would be a lot moister, and if it were only me eating, that is what I would use. The choice is yours; give this Chicken Cacciatore with Pasta Skillet Recipe a try, and enjoy.
