Quick Chicken And Bacon Cacciatore

Quick Chicken And Bacon Cacciatore

Posted 2017-06-09 by Naomi follow
Hearty, quick, easy and delicious. The bacon adds extra flavour to the chicken and the sauce. I also add fluid from the kalamata olive jar instead of water for taste.

You can make ahead, reheat or freeze this versatile dish. I serve mine with pasta but polenta, mashed potato or vegetables would work well.
