21 Day Fix Chicken Cacciatore

Hi everyone!   Wow!  What a week away!  We just got back from a trip to Florida and let’s just say this mama is TIRED today!   I just started another round of the 21 Day Fix today so I knew I wanted something that was going to be Fix approved and SIMPLE for me to make tonight – simple is always good!   I went with this 21 Day Fix Chicken Cacciatore one skillet meal and it definitely got the thumbs up for the blog from Basili!  The boys ate it too!  I feel like I KNOW I have struck gold when Basili walks in and takes a deep inhale in and says “WOW!!  It smells amazing in here!!”.  (thank you red wine!!!)  Music to my ears.  Shhhhh!!  Don’t tell him how easy it is!

This meal was truly very simple and the clean up was a breeze!   I served each chicken breast over sauted zoodles (zucchini noodles) and topped each with some fresh basil and Parmesan.

I hope your family enjoys this as much as we did!
