I love Cacciatore and this sounded easy for me to translate to an Instant Pot. I am new to IP since doing crock pot recipes for years! It came out amazing! My hubby doesn't like Green Bell Peppers, so I used 1 and it still came out excellent! Served with Angel Hair Pasta. Definitely a keeper and will make again!! Thank you

Easy to make, used regular tomatoes instead of one with seasonings and added the garlic, basil, and oregano myself. (1tbsp. of each) and I would definitely add a tbsp. of sugar, otherwise it will be acidic. My daughter gave it 5 stars and my hubby gave it a 3.5 or 4. My picky son even ate it, which is always a win!

Was easy to prepare but tasted a little bland. Added some chilli powder, chicken stock powder and a little sugar to boost the flavour. Was still missing something. Still, we enjoyed it. Would have this again. Our fussy 12yo gave this a 10! That's a winner on its own! Thank for a lovely recipe.

I used vegetarian chicken cutlets instead of the chicken thighs; and I served them on croissants for lunch. Very delicious. Thanks, Martha, for sharing this recipe.

I can only rate this recipe on the ingredients and the easy directions, since I have not yet made it - but it sounds very tasty. I'll definitely make this on a busy day. Twelve servings you say? Not as far as my guys are concerned (LOL)! : )

A simple and easy recipe. The sauce is very flavorful and the chicken thighs turn out moist and fall-apart tender every time!
