With a light butter and wine sauce, the tomatoes are allowed to shine in this simple yet tasty dish.
Ingredients
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally (to speed pan frying)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1½ cups cherry tomatoes, whole
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine, cold
Instructions
  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and fry in a hot skillet with oil. Fry about 5 minutes per side, or until fully cooked. Remove to a plate to keep warm and set aside.
  2. Add wine, garlic and tomatoes to skillet and simmer over medium-high heat until wine is reduced by half and tomatoes start to split, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and whisk in butter. To make a thicker sauce, pour in a cornstarch mixture (1 tsp cornstarch + 1 tsp cold water) while sauce is simmering. Whisk until thick. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.

      I agree nothing tastes better than butter, but for those who follow a dairy-free diet that is their next best substitute.

        Being dairy casein sensitive I use Ghee from purity farms in place of butter. It has fantastic properties: salt free, no GMO's, lactose and casein free, Kosher, no transfatty acids and 0mg/serving Oxidized Cholesterol. More expensive than butter or margarine by quite a bit, but for special recipes well worth it. Thanks for the tip on chilling the butter: now all I have to do is the shopping for the ingredients. Have a great day and God Bless - Lee

    What about other recipes? When I clicked on "Chicken" this and one other one came up. I know there are more recipes that you can provide me with. What about Crock Pot Recipes??? Do you have any easy crock pot recipes for me. I had surgery on my right hand (dominant hand) and cannot cut and chop things so it is VERY difficult to prepare meals - especially dinners. Can you supply me with any EASY gluten free recipes to prepare for "disabled" individuals?

      We have over 1000 recipes on our site that are available to our Premium Members. A small portion of those recipes we have 'free' and available to anyone. If you enter 'chicken' in the search box at the top of the page, there will be more than two recipes that come up (since it will search from all categories, and not just Main Dishes). If you search for 'crock pot' a tasty recipe for Chicken Cacciatore will be displayed.
      Unfortunately, we don't have any category or way to sort for easy to prepare dishes. But...I'd say this is the perfect time to get your family or friends to help with the dinnertime chores 🙂 Hope you get better soon!
