Not you regular cacciatore. This is a comfort dish made easy and lower in fat using skinless chicken breast. Has a dry rub and is quicker cooking then legs. Rich with lots of browned vegetables. This seems like a lot of work, but is made in no time and seems like you've been cooking for hours.

This comfort dish goes a long way. I 1/2ed the recipe and we still had leftovers for the 2 of us. It is thicker then the usual Cacciatora. There is a good verity of vegetables. It's packed with a nice blend of herbs and spices. It's a keeper.
