Prego Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Like most people, we are a very busy family here, so we often order out which can quickly add up.  However, with the economy taking the downturn it has, everyone is looking for ways to save money.  I recently read in my local newspaper that people are joining food co-ops and buy whole cows to save money.  Another great way to save money, is to quit ordering out.  Instead, you can save a lot of money by making homecooked meals.  This easy to make recipe is not only easy but pretty cheap to make also.  This recipe will make 4 servings, and the total cost of this meal is $13.04 (which include the serving suggestions).  Where else can you feed your family for that cheap?  I do have to thank Prego for this great recipe to try out.   My family loved it and I am sure yours will too!

When recipes call for a pan, the oven temperature has been calculated for metal pans.  Reduce heat by 25 degrees F if using a glass baking dish.
