EEEP!

This amazing skillet chicken recipe only requires a handful of pantry ingredients + wine. It tastes like your favorite restaurant meal, only THIS was prepared by YOU in your own kitchen!

Making this Chicken in Tomato Sauce Recipe actually makes me feel like a real chef. A chef who doesn’t follow the rules and just goes with whatever I-have-a-taste-for-feeling that comes to mind.

Chicken, 30 minute dinners, tomatoes

Our tomato sauce chicken is so deliciously tangy and savory and sweet, has a deep and creamy texture, thanks to the half and half + wine, and it’s super good.

It reminds me of my One Dish Chicken Bake, except for the fact that this recipe is prepared on the stovetop, plus it includes a whole bunch of more amazing ingredients that I *think* you’ll appreciate.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN IN TOMATO SAUCE

  • The chicken breasts are rubbed with seasonings and pan seared for about 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned.
  • We then add some butter, onions, and garlic to the skillet, and follow up with wine, tomatoes, tomato paste, capers, and half & half.
  • Chicken breasts will be added back into the skillet and cooked for an additional 8 minutes so that all the flavors blend well together and we end up with a juicy and tender chicken dinner.

  1. I just wanted you to know that it shows 1 teaspoon of dried basil twice in your recipe. I am hoping you only meant to put it once as I am making this tonight. I will let you know how it turns out. I am super excited!

    This is a delicious recipe. A favourite for us. Didn’t have any capers this time round so used a chilli instead. Added that extra punch
