Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

After eating salads every day for the week, I had a craving for something different. I didn’t want anything complicated as it was just me eating, and I didn’t want to make the drive into town to get ingredients. After looking at I what I had on hand, I decided on this easy version of chicken cacciatore. You can cook up your own boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but I happened to have some already cooked sliced chicken breasts in the freezer that I decided to use to make cooking even easier.

Around here, the summer squash are in season, so they can be found everywhere – including our garden. Our CSA boxes have also been filled with loads of yummy squash goodness along with other delicious veggie and fruit delights. Our fridge was quickly filling up with summer squash, and I didn’t want any of it to go to waster. It was time to come up with a way to use a lot of it at once. While I have used the squash in pasta dishes in the past, I knew I wanted something different this time. A few days earlier,…
