How to make Sauteed Chicken with Tangy Tomato Sauce:

Lightly coated chicken is sautéed in a skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil. The chicken is then removed from the pan, and a tomato and bell pepper mixture is mixed in and sautéed to create a tangy sauce. After cooking that for a couple of minutes, the chicken is added back into the pan until it is cooked though- only about 8 more minutes. It’s that easy!

There is plenty of sauce to go around to top the chicken for individual servings. You can serve it over rice or alongside a few roasted potatoes.

  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 whole green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup fat free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary


  • In a low wide bowl, combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium-heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Set aside.
  • Add green onions and garlic to the pan and cook until the green onions are softened, about 1 minute. Add the vinegar, increase the heat to high and cook until slightly evaporated, about 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients, plus the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil, add the chicken back to the pan, reduce to a simmer; cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Divide the chicken and sauce among 4 bowls and serve.
