Chicken and tomatoes
For me, chicken and tomatoes is the peanut butter and chocolate of the savory world--comforting, satisfying, and mouth-watering. First, it was Mom's chicken gilly (chicken wings cooked in tomato sauce) with white rice, then a friend's chicken paprikash with nokedli, then another friend's chicken cacciatori with egg noodles. Now, an impromptu sauted chicken with sauted tomatoes. It's tame, quick, tasty, and healthy.
Prep was easy--butterfly the chicken breast so its mostly a uniform width, rub it down with some olive oil and fresh herbs and spices (basil, oregano, salt, pepper), cook it through, and tent it to keep it warm on a plate. Then, in the same skillet, toss some halved cherry tomatoes with minced garlic and onions and more of the same herbs and spices used on the chicken. Let the tomatoes juice out a little, then pour the impromptosauce over the chicken and serve with brown rice.
