Chicken with Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Last night's dinner was again inspired by my favorite magazine, Everyday Food. I have yet to have any of their recipes disappoint. I couldn't believe how few ingredients this recipe used to produce such a well seasoned and filling dish. As recommended in the recipe, I served this over rice.

Chicken with Tomatoes and Mushrooms
Recipe Courtesy of Martha Stewart

Serves 4

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large (5-quart) saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Cook chicken, turning when it easily releases from the pan, until golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add mushrooms; cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, tomatoes, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, until tomatoes have broken down, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan; cover, and cook until chicken is opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn chicken to coat with sauce, and serve.
