Begin dinner with the delightful Tender Chicken for Two from Rosena Vrshek of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of traditional tomatoes, her version of chicken cacciatore uses ketchup, which imparts a slightly sweet flavor. “Serve it with rice or mashed potatoes, “she suggests.

"Super simple to prepare. I had a bag of frozen red, orange & yellow peppers in the freezer that I tossed a handful in the pan. Didn't have fresh, but a can of mushroom pieces and away we went! I really enjoyed it and will fix it again."
