Microwave Chicken Cacciatore

27 mins (prep 15, cooking 12)
14 ingredients
6 servings
This is one of the few main dishes I cook completely in the microwave. It's easy, delicious and simple to adapt to ingredients on hand. If I don't have spaghetti sauce, I substitute a can of diced tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce, along with some basil, oregano, and a bay leaf. You can also cut the chicken into strips or chunks, depending on your preference.
