Easy Boneless Chicken Cacciatore

Posted by Beni Cook

This boneless version of the classic Italian chicken cacciatore is every bit as tender, juicy AND tasty as the real deal. Plus, it’s super easy, and made in half the time too! It’s full of rich flavor thanks to plenty of mushrooms, tomatoes and herbs.

• ¼ cup all-purpose flour
• 2 250g boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
• ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
• 250g mushrooms, quartered
• 1 small onion, sliced
• 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 3/4 teaspoon dried, plus more for garnish
• ½ cup dry white wine
• 1 400g can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, drained
• 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
• ¾ cup sliced jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed
• ¼ cup quartered Kalamata olives



1) Place flour in a shallow bowl. Cut each chicken breast in half on the diagonal to make 4 roughly equal portions; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour and transfer to a plate. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the flour.
2) Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
3) Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add mushrooms, onion, rosemary and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the vegetables with the reserved flour and cook, stirring, until coated. Add wine to the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add drained tomatoes, broth, roasted red peppers and olives; bring to a lively simmer over medium-low heat.
4) Return the chicken to the pan and continue cooking, stirring once or twice, until the liquid has thickened slightly and the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve the chicken with the sauce and garnished with rosemary if desired.
