Not sure where I found this recipe, but it's tasty and easy! Note: if you use canned tomatoes (instead of tomato sauce), I'd recommend adding a little more flavoring - personally I like extra garlic, bay leaf, and/or basil. Also, I used tenderloins (which are smaller than breasts), so the cooking time would be shorter to avoid drying out the chicken.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil; add the chicken and mushrooms. Cook over medium-low heat until golden, about 3 minutes per side.
  2. Add the garlic, salt and pepper to taste; stir until blended. Transfer the chicken and mushrooms to a side dish.
  3. Add the wine to the skillet. Increase the heat to high and boil the wine, scraping up any browned pieces from the bottom of the skillet, until reduced to a thin film.
  4. Add the tomatoes and heat to boiling, breaking the whole tomatoes into pieces with the side of a wooden spoon or spatula.
  5. Return the chicken, mushrooms, and any juices to the skillet. Add the dried oregano (if using fresh, add later). Bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally; cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. If chicken is done, but sauce is too thin for your liking: Transfer the chicken to a side dish. Boil the tomato sauce over high heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Then return chicken to skillet.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
