Instructions

  • Cut chicken breasts into tenders.

  • Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Gently toss around to coat evenly.

  • Slice tomatoes and chop garlic.

  • Preheat large ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat and swirl a bit of oil to coat.

  • Add half of chicken and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown on each side. Transfer to a dish and cook remaining chicken this way.

  • Reduce heat to low, add garlic and 1/2 tsp oregano. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently (add a bit of oil if there was none left from cooking chicken).

  • Layer tomatoes on top, sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Turn up the heat to medium and cook tomatoes for about 5 minutes, gently tossing them around (if tomatoes aren’t juicy enough, add a splash of water).


  • When tomatoes have released their juices and turned into fresh tomato sauce, turn off the heat and return chicken back to skillet.

  • Gently tuck it in between tomatoes and sprinkle with fresh basil or parsley.

  • Serve warm with whole wheat spaghetti, quinoa, brown rice or buckwheat.

Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
