Number of Servings: 4


    1 full chicken breast boneless & skinless
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium yellow or orange pepper, sliced
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed or diced
    1 lg can of diced tomatoes
    1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1/4 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp cornstarch


Cut raw chicken into chunks approximately 1.5" square. Heat oil in non-stick frypan and add chicken pieces. Cook until all sides have changed colour. Add onions, pepper slices and garlic. Saute until onions become transparent. Add the entire can of tomatoes and salt, pepper, oregano, basil and thyme and bring to a boil. Let simmer covered for 15 minutes and then uncover and simmer for 15 minutes more to reduce the liquid. Add the cornstarch to 2 tbsp of cold water and stir into chicken mixture until liquid thickens.

    I used diced tomatoes; I added a small can of mushrooms; and I added about 1/4 cup of Marsala cooking wine. It was delicious paired with Ronzoni Smart Taste angel hair pasta and fresh English peas. We had no leftovers at all. =D - 11/10/09

    Very good/ quick &easy to make. I used 1 can of stewed tomatoes and 1 can of diced... would have used 2 stewed if I'd have had them on hand. Also put in about 3/4 cup white wine... but I think I may have liked it better without. I felt like something was missing but couldn't put my finger on it. - 11/19/08
