Chicken Pomodoro will be your new weeknight favorite!
Chicken Pomodoro is easy to prepare and takes less than 30 minutes, perfect for a weeknight supper. It’s also fancy enough for preparing for company; I’ve made it several times for my friends and family!
Chicken Pomodoro is a great teaching dish for anyone who wants to learn how to cook with fresh ingredients, there is just no comparison for that fresh herb taste. In this recipe, the Chicken breast meat is first patted dry and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, then cooked in a saute pan until deeply golden on both sides. This step is not to cook the chicken all the way through, but to help create a fabulous pan sauce to smother your finished chicken with. So about that pan sauce…
Building a pan sauce with the leftover browned bits of chicken will really make you feel like you’re a pro chef. Pan sauce recipes build on the flavorful browned bits of protein called ‘fond’ left stuck to the bottom of the pan. The french learned not to toss it out, but instead use the concentrated flavor bits to build savory sauces. Tossing chopped onion into the pan will help release the fond from the bottom so it can cook into the tomato juices, cream, and fresh herbs you’ll use to round out this recipe.
When cooking this recipe, prepping all ingredients beforehand is a must. It goes fast, and you won’t have time to be chopping up stuff while cooking at the same time.
Here’s the best part of Chicken Pomodoro: the chicken goes back into this lovely sauce you’ve created to finish cooking, so it’s juicy tender and sooooo tasty! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do :0)
