HCG Chicken Cacciatore

Introduction

I modified this from a recipe I found online to use only 1 vegatable and one protein. It also uses 1/4 daily portion of grissini, so keep that in mind.

Ingredients

    6- 100g chicken breasts
    2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
    2 grissini, crushed, for dredging
    3 tablespoons water
    2 tbsp dried minced onions
    3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 1/2 cup low- sodium chicken broth
    1 ( 28-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
    3 tablespoons drained capers
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
    1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken pieces with 1 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken pieces in the crushed grissini to coat lightly.
In a large heavy saute pan, heat the 3 tbsp water over a medium-high flame. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and saute just until brown,
about 5 minutes per side. Add more water as it evaporates. If all the chicken does not fit in the pan, saute it in 2 batches. Transfer the chicken to
a plate and set aside. Add the onion and garlic to the same pan and saute over medium heat about 5
minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the broth and simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juice, capers and oregano. Return the chicken pieces to the pan and turn them to coat in the sauce. Bring the sauce to a simmer.
Continue simmering over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through.
Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a platter. If necessary, boil the sauce until it thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Spoon off any excess fat
from atop the sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with the basil and serve.
This recipe is also excellent in a slow cooker on low.
