Low Fat Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore

The original recipe from Giada De  Laurentiis received excellent ratings. This one is a healthier version of Giada's and its delicious, easy and Swank friendly. 


4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste (about 1 teaspoon)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 tablespoons of olive oil 
1 large bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes with juice
3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp drained capers
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped coarsely 


  1. Mix flour, salt and pepper together. Then, dredge the chicken lightly in the flour. 
  2. In a large saucepan or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook until brown, about 5 minutes per side then set the chicken aside on a plate. 
  3. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic to the pan.  Add a little oil to the pan if necessary.  Cook until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Check seasoning, add more if needed.
  4. Add the wine to the pot and cook it until it reduces by half, about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  5. Add the tomatoes with their juice, capers, chicken broth, and oregano. 
  6. Return the chicken to the pan and cover with the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook the chicken for about 20-30 minutes.  Once the chicken is cooked through, remove the chicken with tongs and place on a platter.  
  7. If necessary, cook the sauce longer to thicken it. Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with basil. 
  8. Serve on a bed of whole wheat spaghetti
