Prepping the Chicken

In a big pan, heat some olive oil. Put the chicken in and cook it until it turns a yummy golden color.

Building Flavors

Throw in pieces of onion and tiny bits of garlic into the pan. Cook until they smell really good. Add colorful bell peppers and mushrooms, and cook until they get a little soft.

Simmering in Goodness

Pour in crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, and maybe some red wine if you want. Add some seasonings like oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Stir it all together and let it gently bubble.
