Chicken Cacciatore

This is a great low-fat meal, and it's so easy to make!  We served it over pasta.

I found this recipe in Candace Anderson's The Everything Freezer Meals Cookbook.  I'll be making this for our February freezer cooking get-together this month. 

* 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
* 1 onion, sliced into rings
* 1 green bell pepper, sliced
* 1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 (6-oz) cans tomato paste
* 1/4 cup red wine
* 1 cup water
* 1 (14.5 oz) can stewed tomatoes with liquid
* 1 tsp dried oregano
* 1/2 tsp dried basil
* 1/2 tsp salt (used a little more)
* 1/4 tsp black pepper (used a little more)

Freezing Day--Put chicken, onions, peppers, and mushrooms in a freezer bag.  In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken.  Freeze.

Reheating Instructions--Defrost in refrigerator overnight.  Put in slow-cooker and cook 7-9 hours on low.  Add additional water if needed.
