Deet’s Life-FOOD-Two quick chicken dishes


My good friend, Dottie M., and I were trading chicken recipes and we both insisted they had to be quick and delicious.  I gave her my Chicken Verdi recipe and she blessed me with this really scrumptious recipe.  My recipe follows.  You won’t be sorry when you make these. 

Balsamic Chicken in Tomato-Mushroom Sauce(serves 4)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves about 1 ¼ pounds

½ tsp each S&P

3 T extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion sliced

½ pound sliced or quartered mushrooms (I like Baby Bellas)

1 can, 14.5 oz, of Diced Tomatoes with garlic and olive oil

2 T Balsamic vinegar

¼ c sliced fresh basil

  1. Season chicken with S&P.  Heat 2 T of the oil, add chicken and cook until lightly browned.  Remove from skillet.
  2. Add remaining oil to skillet with onion and mushrooms; sauté for 5 min until onions are soft and mushrooms browned.
  3. Stir in the diced tomatoes and vinegar and bring to a boil.  Add chicken to skillet.  Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer for 10 min. or until chicken is fully cooked.
  4. Remove chicken to serving platter.  Stir basil into the sauce and spoon over the chicken and serve.

Here is Deet’s recipe from “Deet’s Eats”:

S&P to taste

3 T olive oil

2 T butter

3 cloves garlic, minced

¾ cup dry white wine

  1. S&P the chicken then dredge in the flour.  Place olive oil in skillet and heat.  Saute chicken until browned on both sides.  Remove from pan.
  2. Add butter to the skillet and melt, add minced garlic and parsley and cook for a few seconds (careful! Don’t burn the garlic).  Add the wine and scrape up any browned bits and stir. 
  3. Return chicken to the skillet and bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  4. Serve  sauce over the chicken and with rice as a side dish. Yum!
