Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Prep time 12 mins
Cook time 55 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1 cup sauce)
To make this classic dish quicker, we've used skinless bone-in breast halves instead of calling for cutting up a whole chicken. Cacciatore is often served over cooked pasta.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 (8-ounce) bone-in chicken breast halves, skinned
  • 1 (8-ounce) package pre-sliced mushrooms
  • 3 cups sliced green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar tomato-basil pasta sauce (such as Classico)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
