A SPICY CHICKEN BREASTS DINNER

Saucy tomato magic coming to ya in 3…2….1!

Friends, let me introduce you to my new favorite thing: sped-up Chicken Marengo! This is a delicious heaping pile of tomatoes and mushrooms sitting on top of perfectly cooked and somewhat spiced chicken breasts. Healthy comfort food that is absolutely perfect for Fall. You are going to lick your fingers cleeeaaan!

But, can we back it up a bit? I need to tell you a pretty cool story that totally ties in with this recipe.

WARNING: Pictures-galore to follow.

New York City

I have the best job, guys. As I previously stated, right up there, this recipe is sponsored by Hunt’s Tomatoes. Last week I had the honor to join the Hunt’s team and several other bloggers in New York City for the launch of our partnership!  For those of you that follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, you had front row AND backstage passes to all that fun! 

Hunt's

There’s my name: proof that I was there. 

Hunt's Gazpacho

That’s me taking that picture and trying really hard not to dive into the bowl of Gazpacho before taking a photo.

Salmon with Tomato Sauce

That’s the salmon that changed my life 4eva. The tomato puree underneath? UGH! It was to LIVE FOR!

Hunt's Appetizers

And more amazing food… 

Clearly, we wined, we dined, we talked, we photographed, but most important thing of all is that we witnessed the Hunt’s difference.

Hunt’s cans their diced, whole, stewed and crushed tomatoes within hours after harvest. However, before all that happens, Hunt’s peels their diced, whole, AND stewed tomatoes using a process called FlashSteam™ which uses steam from simple hot water.

Below is a demonstration I saw at Tasting Table of how you can steam peel tomatoes at home, which is similar to the FlashSteam™ process that Hunt’s uses for its tomatoes.

Cut a cross on the bottom of the tomato.

Drop it where it’s HOT

Peel it. 

BOOM! Steam peeled tomatoes using just water! Done and done.

You see, some companies use *lye (a chemical) to peel their tomatoes, and Hunt’s just uses FlashSteam™, which is kind of brilliant! I mean, Lye peeling is generally recognized as safe by the FDA and has no adverse effects on the healthfulness of tomatoes, but still. If you can just use hot water, why reach for the stuff with chemicals?! RIGHT?! Right.

In the meantime, we have our chicken on the burner right next to us, sizzling away, waiting for her sauce to dress her up and make her that much more delicious.
