Chicken cacciatore or Hunterís chicken stew is a classic Italian dish of chicken, tomatoes and peppers. This version uses chunks of chicken breast, but if you prefer you could use diced thighs as itís much cheaper to buy than breast. Either way, it is very quick to cook which makes it a great choice for mid-week when the family has no patience. Serve it with potatoes, noodles or pasta and a big green salad for an extra healthy twist. Itís the perfect hearty supper for a hungry family!

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized chunks
