4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
Garnish: 1/4 cup small basil leaves
How to Make It
Place chicken breast halves between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan. Add chicken; sauté for 3 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer to a serving platter. Add coarsely chopped garlic cloves to pan; sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in cherry tomatoes and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon over chicken. Garnish with small basil leaves.
I wish there a were 4.5 stars rating - this may not be a dinner party-worthy recipe, but it certainly is one of my go-to dishes. So easy and so tasty. I usually serve with rice and a veggie dish. The tomato sauce is really good on the rice. I also add more basil to the tomatoes as they cook.
This dish was very easy to prepare and colorful. Tasted fine, but did not leave an impression on me. I am wondering if I had gotten fresher tomatoes, like from a farmers market, if that would have made a difference.
I served this at a dinner party because I wanted a lighter main dish to complement the rich mac and cheese I was preparing. It stole the show! It was very easy to make and very light. I used chicken tenders, because it was what I had on hand, and they worked well, just a shorter cooking time. Like another reviewer, I also added extra chicken broth to have more sauce. Would definitely make again.
Loved this recipe. My husband is always complaining about chicken being boring and this was a good remedy. Made it exactly as written, except I used more like 2/3c chicken broth because I wanted a "saucier" sauce. Delicious!
This was a quick, easy meal that my husband and all 6 of my kids liked (ages 3-17). I served it on a bed of brown rice with steamed brocoletti on the side. The colors were beautiful and the tastes complimented each other. I didn't change a thing and would definitely make it again.
