Chicken Cacciatore with Sweet Potato Noodles (paleo and gluten-free)

Spiralizers Rock!If you are looking for a one-pot dinner and a happy, healthy twist on a traditional recipe, try this Chicken Cacciatore with Sweet Potato Noodles. To make the “noodles” you can either julienne your sweet potato or use a spiralizer, which I’ve owned since 2013 and now couldn’t live without.
