Vegetarian Chicken Cacciatore


I find it interesting that cacciatore means hunter in Italian. In preparing this dish I did make it “hunter-style” (meaning I did prepare this with onions, herbs and tomatoes) but took some liberties with adding more veggies to this awesome dish.

The added veggies also give some extra vitamins/minerals like extra fiber, calcium, potassium, B6, D, K, E and A plus the good carbs your body needs and it really gives a nice twist to this classic tasty dish. The workout group I am in had a type of this recipe but it gave me an idea to make it but with a vegetarian twist and I found it to be more hardy and so good.



  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add fillets; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes,
  3. Add onion, celery, garlic, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes or until onion begins to soften.
  4. Add tomatoes, basil, and pepper (if desired); cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Add zucchini and eggplant; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes,
  6. Garnish with parsley if desired.

Serve over brown wheat spaghettis noodles that are cooked per the packaged directions.

You can top with shredded parmesan, enjoy!
