Chicken with Chunky Vegetable Sauce

Juicy diced tomatoes, oregano, and artichoke hearts provide great taste as well as cancer protection and increased immunity in this Mediterranean-inspired dish.

Start to finish: 40 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 14-1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons drained capers or 2 tablespoons chopped pitted ripe olives
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice
  • Pitted ripe olives (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in flour to coat. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook onion in hot oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Stir in garlic; push mixture to sides of pan. Add chicken. Cook 4 minutes, or until brown, turning once. Add tomatoes, artichokes, broth, and pepper; stir.
  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes, or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Remove chicken.
  4. Simmer tomato mixture, uncovered, about 3 minutes, or until reduced to desired consistency. Stir in capers and oregano. Serve the chicken over rice; top with sauce. If desired, garnish with olives.
