Chicken Cacciatore

 For Bariatric Friendly Do not eat potatoes or have just 2 -3 pieces.  make sure you count your carbs for the day.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               







1 family package of Chicken Thigh and Legs.
 or
Skinless, boneless Chicken Thighs
2 large cans of  Diced Tomatoes
1 large onion
1 container of Portobello mushrooms
1 Red bell pepper
1/2 bag of red potatoes

Place Chicken in skillet with little bit of olive oil. Sear both sides until golden brown. (chicken will still be raw)
You can also just put the chicken in the roasting pan without sauteing them, but it will taste like boiled chicken, so I like to crisp it up a bit by Searing them.

Place chicken in roasting pan.




1 Large Onion:  sliced. Put in large frying pan with olive oil and saute until golden brown.


 Place Diced tomatoes in frying pan.


Stir in: 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, garlic powder.
1 tsp of sugar, 2 leaves basil chopped and a pinch of oregano.

 Cook approx. 5 minutes.


  Pour 3/4 of the mixture on top of chicken.




Pour 3/4 of the mixture on top of chicken.

Mushrooms: Thickly Sliced.
Red Bell Pepper: Sliced into strips.
Cover with Aluminium foil













         

Bake 450 degrees for 30 - 45 minutes / until chicken is done.
