Recipe by Gweggums
Adapted and made my own from "Cooking for Dummies." I grew up hating tomatoes, but I dig this dish. Best with fresh herbs, but dried work in a pinch. I usually omit the onion myself. Sounds like a lot of work, but once you get it going it's extremely easy.
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 -2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tomatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 medium onion, chopped fine (optional)
- 1⁄3 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped (optional) or 1⁄2 tablespoon dried basil (optional)
- black pepper
