Tomato Burst Chicken Cacciatore

Easy Tomato Burst Chicken Cacciatore -One pan and 30 minutes are all you need to make this full flavor, healthy and fresh Italian chicken cacciatore!

This classic Italian dish has hundreds of versions out there. Traditionally this is made with a braised chicken, however in our home, we are trying to stay away from fried foods. In this version of Chicken Cacciatore, you will still get the full flavors of fresh tomatoes, vegetables, and spices but instead of using the classical braised chicken, we subbed ours for the grill. This Tomato Burst Chicken Cacciatore is a quick dish that the entire family will love!

When it comes to making this dish, you really cannot go wrong with whatever vegetables you want to use, as long as you keep the tomato base the same. In our home, this dish is the go to when I need to clean out the fridge because it is a great way to use up any vegetables that need to be eaten.

Plus this dish doesn’t use many dishes and is basically a throw in the pot and let it simmer, which makes it perfect for being able to deep clean the fridge while it cooks. Low mess and low maintenance – can’t go wrong with that in my book.

While we typically make our chicken on the grill, if you have a large enough pot you can throw your chicken in to cook in the same pot as everything else. It will result in a little bit of a bolder flavor. When I cook this for my family I separate the chicken and the pasta because my kids are picky meat eaters so it is easier to get them to eat a blander meat.

Ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1/2 cup red wine
  3. 1 small onion, diced
  4. 2 green peppers, diced
  5. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  6. 2 tablespoons Italian parsley
  7. 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  8. ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  9. ½ pound mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
  10. 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  11. Tomato paste, as desired.
  12. 2 tsp Lemon juice
  13. Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  14. 6 to 8 skinless chicken breast
  15. 6 to 8 slices of swiss cheese
  16. 8 oz Spaghetti Noodles
Instructions
  1. In a skillet over medium heat, add cherry tomatoes, olive oil, red wine, garlic, spices, and lemon juice. Cover and let it sit until tomatoes burst open.
  2. If you desire a thicker sauce, add in a couple tablespoons of tomato paste once all the cherry tomatoes have bust open.
  3. Dice up the mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. Add it to the tomato burst sauce. If you have any additional vegetables such as carrots, spinach, kale, or celery that you would like to add, add it at this point.
  4. Add spaghetti, lightly pressing down so sauce comes over it. Lightly stir it every few seconds, so that spaghetti combines with sauce. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked through and sauce has thickened. You could also boil your pasta in a separate pan of water if desired - if we use gluten free noodles I do boil them separately to avoid clumping.
  5. Grill chicken.
  6. Once everything is done cooking, add pasta, sauce, and chicken to plate. Top with a slice of Swiss cheese.
  7. Enjoy!
