So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Poultry Essentials: Tomato-Braised Chicken Breasts

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. If you are looking for a good Italian dry spice mix, here is the one I use:
    Italian Essentials: Aunt Josephine’s Seasoning Mix
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. THE SAUCE
  5. Add all the sauce ingredients together.
  6. Add to a sauté pan over medium heat.
  7. Bring the mixture up to a simmer.
  8. Allow the sauce to simmer until it reduces and begins to thicken, about 15 – 20 minutes
  9. Chef’s Tip: The sauce will be ready, when a wooden spoon dragged through the sauce leave a trail.
  10. THE CHICKEN
  11. While the sauce is simmering, cut the chicken in half, lengthwise.
  12. Add some salt and pepper to both sides.
  13. Lay the chicken into the reduced sauce, and reduce heat to medium-low.
  14. Cover, and allow to lightly simmer, for 15 minutes.
  15. Remove lid, add the cheeses and olives, then cover for 2 – 3 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and melty.
  16. PLATE/PRESENT
  17. Place the chicken on a bed of rice, and serve. Enjoy.
  18. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
