Chicken cacciatora is an all-time favorite of my mom, and she shared her recipe with me. 

The sweetness of the carrots blended with the tomatoes and bell peppers. As a result, you have a sauce with a beautiful aroma and taste.

Another way to prepare this wonderful dish is on your pressure cooker.

In less than 20 minutes, it is ready.

Add all the ingredients together, seal, and cook according to manufacturing direction.

The chicken can be paired with mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.

Spaghetti rigati will absorb the sauce best.

Our choice tonight was “Spaghetti Rigati”.

Great leftover dish…if there are any left.
