Italian Breaded Chicken with Warm Chunky Tomato Sauce

Recipe: Italian Breaded Chicken with Warm Chunky Tomato Sauce NEW


    This is my favorite recipe development of quite some time. It's so simple. It's so satisfying. Sort of like a warm version of bruschetta sauce or a chicken parmagiana with no cheese.

Serves 2


    1 large Grissini bread stick ground to crumb consistency
    8-12 oz. scaloppini chicken (this is breast meat sliced thinly. Or you can use regular breast meat whole. It will just take longer to cook)
    1 large tomato, diced
    5 green onions (scallions), chopped
    (white and light green part only, roots removed)
    2 tsp minced garlic (jar garlic works fine)
    2 tsp Italian Seasoning
    1 8-oz can of Hunt's (Sugar Free) Tomato Sauce


    Slightly spray top side of chicken pieces with Olive Oil spray Dip that side of the chicken in the bread crumbs. Lightly spray large sauté pan with Olive Oil spray. Place chicken breading side down in pan. Cook on Medium High for approximately 3 minutes until lightly brown, and then turn over. Cook on Medium until done, approximately 5 minutes longer or until no pink remains in chicken. While chicken is cooking put tomato, Italian seasoning, garlic and scallions in a medium sauce pan. Cook on medium high just until tomatoes are hot and begin to loosen. Stir often. Then add tomato sauce. Stir and cook until thoroughly heated. Season with salt and pepper.

Serving Suggestions:

    Serve with chicken.

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
