    Skillet Chicken with Cilantro & Tomato

    Savory tomato sauce and fresh cilantro turn ordinary grilled chicken into a hearty ‘more please!’ kind of dish. We added crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick – try adding buffalo sauce for a different variation on the theme or leave out the spice if you prefer a milder flavor.

     

    INGREDIENTS

    • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 6 tbsp. olive oil
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes
    • 1 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1 tsp. parsley
    • 1 tsp. thyme
    • 1 tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • Salt & pepper to taste

     

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Brush chicken breasts with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
    2. On a medium-high grill, pre-cook chicken breasts approximately 4 minutes per side.
    3. In large cast iron skillet over medium-high, add remaining olive oil, onion and garlic, sautéing until translucent.
    4. Add in tomatoes, cumin, parsley, thyme and red pepper flakes, stirring well until mixture comes just to a boil.
    5. Return chicken to skillet, covering chicken with the tomato mixture, then simmer on grill approximately 25-30 minutes more.
    6. Check that chicken is cooked through, then mix in fresh cilantro.
    7. Remove carefully from grill and serve – enjoy!
