Chicken Cacciatore

a easy, healthy, quick dinner?

heat a large sauce pan (in my case a wok) & olive oil on high
place a few chicken breasts meaty side down and brown for 3-4minutes
flip chicken & brown other side, move to a plate.
reduce heat and add more oil.
place 10 oz of buttom mushrooms (quartered) in pan and simmer for 3-4 minutes with salt.
add two green bell peppers and one medium white onion (sliced) to mushrooms.
simmer vegetables until soft, approx. 5-7 minutes.
add two 14oz cans diced tomatoes (with basil, oregno, garlic).
add teaspoon fresh rosemary & 1/2 cup of water.
throw in some red pepper flakes for spice.
bring to simmer.
return chicken breasts to pan & simmer covered for 15 minutes.
remove lid & simmer an additional 10 minutes.
serve over whole wheat spaghetti.
