Who doesn’t love a good Italian dish? Chicken pomodoro is a classic Italian dish, a celebration of crisp, juicy chicken and bursts of flavor in a symphony of deliciousness. Perfect for weeknights as well as a romantic evening for two, this is a dish that won’t soon be forgotten.
The key to a successful Italian dish is fresh, quality ingredients, and chicken pomodoro is no exception. Not only is it incredibly delicious, but it is also relatively straightforward and easy to make. Here is what you will need:
– 1 ½ pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin,
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus more for drizzling
– 1 ½ cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– ½ teaspoon of pepper
– 2 tablespoons of butter
– ¼ cup of white wine
– ¼ cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped
– 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
Start by preheating your oven to 400°F. Once the oven is heated, take the chicken breasts, and in a shallow baking dish season the pounded chicken with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
In a large skillet heat the remaining olive oil, add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Then, add the cherry tomatoes and butter. Once the tomatoes begin to blister and split, pour in the white wine, stirring continuously. Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes or so until the tomatoes become soft and the sauce thickens.
Remove the chicken from the oven and slice into 8 portions. Put the chicken back into the baking dish. Pour the pomodoro sauce over the chicken and top with the parmesan cheese and chopped basil leaves. Place the chicken back in the oven and bake for a few minutes until the sauce is bubbly.
Remove it from the oven and drizzle with a bit of olive oil, then serve with a side of freshly cooked pasta and enjoy!
This classic dish is a great variation on traditional Italian cuisine, combining bright and flavorful ingredients in a savory sauce. Chicken Pomodoro is a classic dish that is sure to please the entire family and make your next dinner special. Bon appetit!
