amazing skillet chicken

I have a garden FULL of beautiful cherry tomatoes!  I’ve made bowls and bowls of Garden Bruschetta and was looking for something else to do with them!

I came up with an amazing and very very simple chicken dish.  I was hoping the flavor of the tomato would be amazing and let me tell you… it was!  My husband said it was his favorite chicken dish that I have ever made.  So, it’s a keeper!

The great thing is that this goes from fridge to table in just over 20 minutes.  Serve it with a side salad and some fresh pasta for a speedy weeknight dinner!

  1. Combine flour, pepper, sage, oregano and salt to taste in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture.

Add chicken to the pan and cook 3 minutes on each side to brown. Add white wine and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook for 12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
