Chicken Cacciatore with Cremini Mushrooms

The cremini mushrooms bring selenium and potassium, not to mention a wealth of B vitamins, to this dish. Heat aids in the availability of certain carotenoids, so the cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene present in the tomatoes grows even more powerful through the cooking process. This dish is great paired with a slice of thick-cut whole-grain bread or a serving of healthy brown rice.
