Chicken Cacciatore Skillet Recipe

We all liked this, even the boys.  I used fresh mushrooms and next time I’ll use a whole cup of rice.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min.
MAKES: 4 servings

Ingredients

  •         1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes

  •          2 garlic cloves, minced
  •          1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided
  •         3/4 cup chopped green pepper
  •          1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained, or 1/2 cup fresh, sliced
  •          1 bay leaf
