Chicken Cacciatore

October 22

“Oh, what an exquisite meal!” That’s what your family will be saying when you cook this delicious dinner. The white wine gives it a rich taste, but without adding the calories you’d get from a heavy sauce. This dish is best when served over spinach!

4 large boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 tsp Rosemary
1/4 tsp basil
1 bay leaf
Pinch of salt and pepper

Directions:
Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat.
Add chicken and brown on both sides.
Add tomato, wine, rosemary, basil, bay leaf, salt and pepper.
Simmer over low heat and continue cooking for 30 minutes.
Remove bay leaf.

Health Benefits
An excellent source of protein with a bevy of vitamin B6, but naturally low in fat and sodium. The tomato is full of antioxidants and goes best when eaten with meat, this acid filled fruit aids in digestion.

  3. Sounds good; but you don’t list tomato in ingredient list, just in instructions, “add tomato.” ???
