Italian Chicken & Peppers

4.8 15

This simple skillet supper is reminiscent of chicken cacciatore, except it cooks in much less time since it uses boneless chicken cut into pieces.  Chicken, peppers and onions gently simmer to perfection in our perfectly seasoned sauce. A great go-to recipe for those weeknight dinners.

How to Make It

Step 1

While the spaghetti is cooking, season the chicken as desired.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring often.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to medium.  Stir the peppers, onions and garlic in the skillet and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Step 3

Stir in the sauce and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Season to taste.  Serve the chicken mixture over the spaghetti.  Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Easy Substitution: You can substitute Italian pork sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces, for the chicken.  Omit the oil and brown the sausage as directed in Step 1.  Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings from the skillet and  proceed as shown above in Step 2.

    Good and easy

    I subbed ital sausage for the chicken because we'd had a lot of chicken lately. It was really good. I'd make it again with sausage or chicken.

    Great for a gluten free dinner with a simple switch.

    We try to cook gluten free, so instead of using noodles in the recipe, switch to spaghetti squash. Bake the squash and when done, scoop out the squash like noodles. Tastes great and you never miss the gluten or starch.

    This meal is becoming one of my husband's favorites.

    Easy to make. A simple twist with the same old ingredients makes a great meal. Try it and enjoy!!
