Quick Chicken Cacciatore
This robust Italian dish, with tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and bell pepper, uses convenient frozen chicken patties.
- 1 package (10.5 ounces) frozen fat-free chicken breast patties, partially thawed
- 1 green bell pepper
- 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced (about 1 cup)
- 1 onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
- 8 ounces uncooked linguine
- 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- Fresh grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
To partially thaw chicken patties, follow package microwave heating directions except microwave on HIGH 1 minute only. Cut chicken patties into 3/4 inch strips and bell pepper into thin strips using Chef’s Knife. Slice mushrooms with Egg Slicer Plus®. Chop onion using Food Chopper.
Cook linguine according to package directions in (4-qt.) Casserole. Drain and keep warm.
Meanwhile, lightly spray (12-in.) Skillet with olive oil using Kitchen Spritzer; heat over medium-high heat 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Add chicken patty strips; cook 5 minutes, turning frequently with Nylon Turner.
Add tomatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms, onion and garlic pressed with Garlic Press. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat; simmer 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve over hot linguine. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

When cooking pasta, always have the water boiling rapidly before adding the pasta. You need to stir the pasta only until the water returns to a boil.
Cacciatore in Italian means “hunter.” Some say this style of dish was developed by the wife of an unlucky hunter who returned home with little more than vegetables.
