Tasty Tuscan Skillet Chicken Cacciatore

Packed with meaty chicken, earthy mushrooms, briny olives, all enveloped in a rich tomato sauce, this is far from a boring chicken dinner. Served up with some savory garlic bread to mop up the sauce, this will be a new family favourite.


Sear the Chicken: Season the chicken liberally with some of the garlic powder, salt and pepper. In a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, sear the chicken breast in a tablespoon of olive oil, on both sides.

Saute the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add the shallots and garlic, and saute until translucent. Add the peppers and mushrooms, and continue to saute.

Make the Sauce: Add the whole tomatoes, and smash them down. Add the spices and olives, and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Put it Together: Put the chicken back in the skillet, and simmer on medium heat for another 15-20 minutes.
