Chicken Cacciatore

3 whole chicken breasts, (about 12 ounces each), boned, skinned, and cut in half
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces small white button mushrooms, sliced 1/4 inch thick

1 small onion, peeled and sliced lengthwise 1/4 inch thick
2 ribs celery, strings removed, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
2 small carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally 1/8 inch thick
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup dry white wine

2 cups chopped canned tomatoes
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced lengthwise 1/4 inch thick
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup Chicken Stock

2. Wipe out skillet, and respray. Add mushrooms, and cook until browned, about 5 minutes; set aside. Reduce heat to low.

3. Respray skillet; add onions, celery, carrots, and garlic; cover, and cook, stirring, until onions are translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Add wine, and raise heat to high; cook until wine is almost evaporated, about 30 seconds.
