  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Cook time: 16 Minutes
  • Prep time: 14 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-oz.) jar dried tomatoes in oil
  • 4 (6-oz.) skinned and boned chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Garnish: fresh oregano sprig

Preparation

1. Drain 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil from jar of tomatoes into a large skillet; set aside. Remove 1/4 cup dried tomatoes from jar, and finely chop. Refrigerate remaining tomatoes and oil in jar for another use.

2. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/2-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper.

3. Heat 1 1/2 Tbsp. reserved oil in large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.

4. Add chopped dried tomatoes, remaining 1/8 tsp. salt, chicken broth, oregano, and vinegar to pan; bring to a boil, scraping to loosen browned bits from pan. Cook 3 minutes or until broth mixture is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish, if desired.
