Chicken Cacciatore


This was so good that I didn't even miss the pasta!! :)
Paleo Chicken Cacciatore served with a sliced tomato, basil & pine nut salad.

Ingredients:

6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
Fresh ground pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 red onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 C sliced mushrooms
4 celery stalks, 1/4 inch slices
8 oz can organic, no salt tomato sauce
16 oz can organic, no salt diced tomatoes
1 T fresh basil, chopped
1 T Italian parsley, chopped

Coat bottom of large baking pan with tomato sauce. Place chicken breasts in baking dish, and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper, and oregano. Lay onions, garlic, mushrooms, and celery on top of chicken pieces. Pour remainder tomato sauce and diced tomatoes over chicken and top with the fresh basil and parsley. Bake at 325 degrees for 70 minutes or until chicken is done. This was one of my FAVORITE recipes so far. I loved all the herby vegetables over the chicken! I served this with a tomato, basil, and pine nut salad. Super easy. I used two types of heirloom tomatoes for color pizzaz! I arranged on a plate alternating fresh basil leaves and tomatoes. I drizzled 1 T balsamic vinegar over tomatoes (an optional and debatable paleo food item). Then I topped with about 1 T pine nuts! This recipe yields leftovers... which is oh-so -nice! Enjoy! :)

Cacciatore looks so yummy; I just made fresh tomato sauce on Sunday that would be really tasty with veggies and chicken.

It would serve 6 (one breast each)... but you could easily double if need be! The leftovers were even better the next day! :)
