Chicken Cacciatore

We needed to have a quick dinner tonight, so I came up with this recipe. I’m not sure if it’s truly cacciatore, but it tastes good and has similar ingredients. We had ours with risotto, garlic bread, and fried cauliflower. Enjoy!

Chicken Cacciatore
1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 lemon
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Cook in hot oil for 2 minutes on each side; remove chicken from pan. Add in additional olive oil, if needed, and sauté onions and next 2 ingredients for 10 minutes or until tender. Return chicken to pan, and stir in tomatoes, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is done.
