Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Another Italian inspired dish, I’m not Italian but I really Italian cuisine and Italian style dishes. This Easy Chicken Cacciatore has the wonderful flavor of peppers and onions.

Those two always play nice together. But the important thing here is the quality of your canned crushed tomatoes. They will make or break this particular dish. You can replace the chicken thighs with chicken breast of course.

You can also replace the cayenne pepper with black pepper or just go half and half. This dish can easily made in under 30 minutes.
