RECIPE: Rich Tomato Chicken

Share Button

Looking for a quick and easy dinner on a week night without a lot of ingredients? This recipe is a perfect match and you probably have everything you need already in your pantry.

Start with a couple of chicken breasts. If you want them to cook really quick, flatten them with the flat side of a heavy pan. Salt and pepper the chicken breasts.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and then drizzle with olive oil. If you really want to enrich the chicken, add 2 tablespoons of butter.

Brown the chicken on both sides. Lower the heat to medium.

Pour diced tomatoes over the chicken and add two tablespoons of red wine vinegar.

Sprinkle dried basil over the chicken as well as salt and pepper, if you desire.

Cover the skillet and allow to simmer, stirring as needed, for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

This is great served over mashed potatoes or as it is.
