This first appeared in Cooking Light several years ago. As presented, it includes my changes to make the dish a bit more saucy and fully flavored.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
  2. Add garlic to pan and sauté 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients; scrape pan to loosen brown bits.
  3. Return chicken and accumulated juices to pan. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until chicken is done.

Liked this overall but thought it could use a bit more flavor...will add some red wine, maybe some balsamic and red pepper FLAKES. Was quick and easy. Dredged chicken in flour, s&p, then finished in 325 oven uncovered until falling off bone. Real nice presentation. All gone!

I had high hopes for this dish; however, it just did not come through on flavor and was a bit bland. I went strictly by the recipe instructions and ingredients; however, it was just okay for me. I do have to give credit to the recipe for using healthy ingredients -- maybe next time I will add more spices to the ingredient list.
