Baked Chicken Cacciatore

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by lazyme

All the traditional ingredients of everybody's favorite Italian chicken dish--but this easier version is baked instead of simmered on top of the stove. Serve with spaghetti, rice, mashed potatoes or crusty bread for mopping up the sauce. From Ladie's Home Journal.

Excellent! I used portabello mushrooms, chicken breasts, and roasted red peppers to make this. This was so easy and so good. My chicken was tender as well. I served it with rice and green salad. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Italy.
