Chicken with Spicy Fresh Tomato Sauce
||1 / 10
3 medium tomatoes, seeded, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1) In a medium bowl, stir together tomatoes,parsley, 1 tablespoon of the oil, garlic, salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper.
2) Heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in center, turning once. Place on plate; cover loosely with foil.
3) Add tomato mixture to same skillet; cook and stir 2 minutes. Spoon sauce over chicken.
Serve with light red wine, maybe a Chianti...
(Because tomatoes are the centerpiece of the dish and cook for just 2 minutes, make sure to use ripe, juicy ones. The sauce gets a bit of heat from the red pepper.)
