Spiced Chicken Cacciatore

I haven't had time to post the recipes lately. We have had a TON of things going on and happening lately. Our van is broke down. The metal fuel line is rusted. So, we have to have that fixed sometime. I was wondering why we were getting such bad gas mileage. It is horrible to have that now-a-days!

The Menu:
Spiced Chicken Cacciatore

The Original Recipe:
I found this recipe on Weight Watchers. It is Delicious!! I did everything as directed. I even froze the leftovers in a freezer and just thawed it out yesterday for supper, and it still tasted GREAT!
This is that "something different" that you want to eat, but you never know what it is!

Spiced Chicken Cacciatore


2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup onion(s), chopped
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1 medium green pepper(s), diced
1 cup mushroom(s), sliced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
28 oz canned diced tomatoes
1/4 cup parsley, fresh, chopped
8 oz uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti

Heat oil in a large saucepan or stock pot over medium-high heat; add onion, garlic, green pepper and mushrooms. Sauté until vegetables are tender and mushrooms release juice, about 4 minutes. Add chicken and sauté until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add basil, curry powder, salt and black pepper; stir to coat.
Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, partially cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to package directions.
Transfer spaghetti to four shallow bowls and spoon chicken mixture over top. Yields about 1 cup of chicken mixture and 1 cup of spaghetti per serving.
