Quick Chicken Cacciatore

Wow! Has it really been THAT long since I posted? I am so sorry! It's been a tough few weeks with death, illnesses, major surgeries on friends, a guest in our house fell down our stairs, etc............
To top it all off, my email was hacked, address book wiped out and then my eBay account was used to order numerous tech gadgets from iPads to phones. Thankfully, no real harm was done, just major inconveniences! So instead of thinking about yummy things to cook, I've been changing passwords, email address and recovering my address book contacts. None of this has been fun!

Now, let's get back to something fun and easy! Not sure how the weather looks at your house, but here it is spring one day and winter the next. It's a hard time to plan seasonal meals, so I will defer to our favorites. Pasta and chicken. This one is quick, easy and yummy!

Quick Chicken Cacciatore
1(8-oz.) pkg pasta, cooked
1 medium onion, cut into thin strips
1 medium green pepper cut into thin strips
1 medium red pepper cut into thin strips
1(8-oz) pkg sliced fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 chicken tenderloins
1 ( 24-oz) jar Classico Cabernet Marinara Sauce ( or your favorite sauce )

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook vegetables for 5to6 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the same skillet over medium high heat. Brown chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side. Stir in pasta sauce and vegetables. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and cook 8 - 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve over hot cooked pasta.
