I am using skinless, boneless chicken thighs and breasts in this dish. But to be totally transparent, I prefer to use skin on, bone in chicken because it tends to be more flavorful. But when you have kids, watching your weight, etc., this is a easier, healthier option. You be you, skin on or off, bone in or not, make this easy weeknight dinner of Easy Boneless Chicken Cacciatore yours.

Vegetable Prep

Like many of us, I work full time and sometimes don’t get home until later in the evening. What I do, to make it easier, is cut up all my veggies to make this chicken dish quick. I place all the produce in a container with the Rosemary and Bay leaf. Garlic separate so it doesn’t get lost.

  • Bell peppers: Cut into strips
  • Mushrooms: Cut in half
  • Onion: cut into wedges
  • Garlic: rough chop
  • Pop in 2 sprigs of Rosemary, 1 Bay leaf

I serve this with pasta, zucchini noodles, mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower and by itself. It’s a versatile dish that works well with any base.

For an easier weeknight dinner, this can also be made in the slow cooker and an Instant pot. I will update as I test for each appliance soon. My preferred method of cooking this dish is in a dutch oven on the stove top.

  • 1 braiser or dutch oven with lid
  • 1 Slow cooker (if using this method)


  • 3 pounds chicken, skinless, boneless thighs and breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour all-purpose, for dredging
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 whole red pepper cored and sliced
  • 1 whole green pepper cored and sliced
  • 1/2 whole red onion sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, whole (white, cremini, baby Bellas) halved or quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 cup white wine dry
  • 1 cup chicken stock/broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes 14.5oz can
  • 1 cup olives whole, green or black, pitted and unstuffed
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning dry
  • 1 teaspoon basil dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 whole bay leaf dry
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  • Prepare the vegetables: bell peppers should be cored and sliced. Sliced red onion. Clean and halve or quarter mushrooms. Roughly chop garlic. Set aside.
  • Using paper towels, pat the chicken dry and season with salt on both sides.
  • Lightly dredge chicken in the flour. Gently shake off excess flour from the chicken pieces and set aside.
  • Preheat pan over medium heat. Using a large 5-quart braiser or dutch oven with lid, add olive oil and heat until the oil is glistening.
  • Brown both sides of each piece of chicken until it's golden. Set aside. The chicken will complete the cooking process in the braising process.
  • Once the chicken is browned, using the same pan, add vegetables and garlic, and a little more olive if needed.
  • Sauté vegetables for about 2-3 minutes until they turn bright in color.
  • Add white wine and deglaze any bits from the chicken and vegetables. About 2 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth, tomatoes, olives, Italian seasoning, dried basil, bay leaf, fresh rosemary, red pepper flakes, remaining salt and pepper. Stir mixture. Nestle chicken pieces into the vegetables and broth.
  • Place lid on braiser or dutch oven and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 30 minutes. Check after 30 minutes to ensure chicken and vegetables are tender and cooked through.
  • Serve with your choice of side and some crusty bread.
