Fantastic! I made this a few nights ago but made a couple changes. I had 1/4 of a red and green pepper I needed to use so I cut them into strips and sauteed them with the other vegetables. I also threw in 1 zucchini and instead of the seasoning I used The Best Creole/Cajun Seasoning Mix. Serve over rice for a great low fat meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Saute the onions, celery and carrot until tender, 4-5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, thyme, salt and cayenne; add the chicken and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat and poach, partially covered, 10 minutes, flip chicken, and cook 4 more minutes.
  4. With a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a platter. Simmer the sauce, uncovered, until reduced by half, 4-5 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
