Whenever I came home and smelled this chicken cacciatore with rice, I knew I was in for a treat.

What an easy and delicious recipe! 5 stars for simplicity alone! I actually used some leftover brown rice in place of the insta-rice to make it even easier (just threw the already-cooked brown rice in at the end to heat up, and let it sit for 5 minutes like the recipe says). I liked the flavor too--pretty straightforward, but good. I could see adding a bit of wine to deglaze the pan after cooking the chicken, onion, and garlic for a touch more flavor if you felt so inclined (I will do this next time--and there will be a next time for this recipe!!). I might add some oregano too. Also, I simply salted to taste for this recipe, and I think we used approx 1 tsp. 2 tsps would have been too salty for our tastes--so I would definitely watch the salt. Served this topped with some freshly grated Parmesan and a side of roasted broccoli. Perfect easy dinner! Thank you so much for the recipe! Read More

not yet. I was wondering if you can use already cooked rice and if so how much. I don't buy minute or instant rice. Read More

This turned out really good! And came together fairly quickly. Easily doable as a weeknight dish. I used 1.5 tsp salt, which to me was the perfect amount. I used barley in place of rice as it is better for your heart and blood sugar. Next time I will double the basil and cayenne, and add 1 tsp oregano also. I broke up the tomatoes with my wooden spatula as everything was cooking, so next time I may just buy sliced stewed tomatoes instead of whole to save myself that step. Will be making again! Read More

Super easy and relatively quick. My husband said “I can tell by just looking at it I’m going to want you to make this again.” I put more cayenne pepper in for a spicy dish. Read More

I thought this was good but it needs more seasoning. Next time I will add fresh basil for added flavor. Read More

Great recipe! I added oregano, celery seed and fennel seed in addition to what the recipe called for. And I used regular rice and it cooked up fine; I boiled it for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Yummy! Read More
