it’s been raining in new york. like a lot. feels like every day (it’s only been 2). all my summer recipes have seem to be put on the back burner because a) i have the ac on b) it’s so humid that i can’t go outside and c) i have been inside with the kids so much we cook to entertain ourselves.

i’ve been craving carbs, my kids have been craving chicken, and my husband has been craving tomato sauce. simple, throw everything together and see what happens. kind of chicken cacciatore-ish but with a summer flair that takes minimum time to cook.

i promise this dish will make everyone happy, your kids, your partner, even your dog :-)

tomato sauce with chicken and olives
  1. get a skillet out and coat with some olive oil, dunk your chicken in egg and then coat your chicken in the flour and brown in your oil. take out and set aside.
  2. in the same skillet add onion and garlic, saute for about 5 minutes till onion becomes translucent and garlic is flavorful. add your wine to de-glaze pan and scrape up all those good brown chicken bits.
  3. add tomatoes, herbs, sugar, olives, capers and peppers. mix and cook for about 10 minutes.
  4. add your chicken back to the skillet and cook for another 10 minutes.
serve over pasta with some salad.
quick, easy, filling and super yummy.don’t forget that giveaway! last day to enter!!! winner will be chosen tonight at midnight (seemed like a good time;-)
