Chicken Pomodoro

It can be challenging to create meals for two , especially on a weeknight , that’s quick ,delicious and not too fussy. Here is where boneless , skinless chicken breasts come in handy. The quick  cooking ensures tender , juicy cutlets you will just love to sink your teeth into after a busy day.


2 boneless chicken breasts , cut into cutlets.

Salt and pepper, I like freshly ground

All purpose flour

Non stick spray , use a combination of canola oil and butter to splurge

2 tbs vegetable oil

1/4 cup vodka

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 tbs fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup chopped tomato ,I use fresh Roma Tomatoes

2 tbs heavy cream

1/3 cup sliced scallions

Season cutlets with salt and pepper and dust with flour. Coat a saute pan with nonstick spray and oil and heat over medium high heat.

Saute cutlets on both sides. Transfer cutlets to a platter; pour fat from pan.

Deglaze pan with Vodka (AWAY FROM HEAT,PLEASE); return to heat and cook until nearly evaporated. Add broth and lemon juice. Return cutlets to pan and cook on each side for 1 minute.

Transfer cutlets to a warm plate. Stir tomato and cream into sauce. Heat through, pour over cutlets.
