Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the chicken, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, and garlic until the chicken is no longer pink inside, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, parsley, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and basil, bring the mixture to a boil, and reduce heat. Cover the skillet and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • While the chicken mixture is simmering, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the noodles uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Serve the chicken cacciatore over the hot cooked noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.

This is excellent! We just loved it! I followed the recipe adding a few things-a diced zucchini, 4 cloves garlic instead of one, 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) of stewed Italian seasoned tomatoes, chopped ,in addition to the crushed tomatoes (the ones i had weren't Italian-style), 1/4 cup dry red wine, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Followed the directions and served it over thin spaghetti with garlic bread. Thank you so much for sharing! I will make this again and the bonus is that it is healthy and very low in fat, but it doesn't taste like it Yum! Also, I think olive oil should be used instead of vegetable, the olive oil gives it a wonderful flavor! Eating the leftovers and they are fantastic! Read More

This is one of those recipes I didn't have much time to dedicate myself into and it turned out so delicious! First I browned the chicken in a pan with lots of onions garlic and green pepper. Once ready I transferred to the crockpot with the remaining ingredients and cooked on low for probably 4 hours. I didn't have any mushrooms I didn't cube the chicken and at the end I forgot to add Parmesan but even then was very flavorful. Next time I will make sure to have everything. Served over whole wheat egg noodles with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. Read More

this is very good! However I did follow another reviewers recommendation and floured the chicken before browning added a 14 1/2 oz can of diced tomatoes in addition to the 28 oz crushed tomatoes used red pepper instead of green used 4 cloves of garlic and sauteed sliced mushrooms and diced zucchini. When I turned it down to simmer I added 1/4 cup dry red wine a packet of Splenda and a pinch of red pepper flakes. THAT made it 5 star awesome!!! Without these changes i feel that it would have just been OK. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as it is written except added one extra bottle of Emeril's Marinara Sauce as we like lots of sauce. It was easy & so delicious! It looked pretty too. Nice to dip garlic bread into. Served it with lightly buttered green beans on the side & the garlic toast. I highly recommend this recipe! Five Stars! Read More

We really liked this recipe. We left out the green pepper because we do not care for it. It was a simple meal great for a weeknight. The leftovers were great too. Read More

While I was frantically looking for the spelling of "Cacciatore" I came across yours. Since my darling boyfriend let me use his kitchen while he mowed...I had to hurry and prepare this before he re-entered "his space". I like the simple up-front ingredients that give it all the "American" italian bold flavors. And I had the kitchen tidy and the Merlot open when he returned exclaiming at the tangy fragrance pouring from the kitchen his kitchen! Loved the recipe! Thanks from Wiscony... Read More
