Sometimes even when at home there is only a few products, you still can prepare satisfying meal. For this one you only need to buy canned tomatoes and chicken breast, other products – I guest almost everyone have at home. But I have to tell you this time you will have to spend some time preparing tomato sauce, but it’s worth that. I like it even more than store bought. But my kids don’t agree with me 🙂 But everyone has the right to choose.

Chicken breast with homemade tomato sauce

Time needed:
Yields: 4 servings
Calories: 376 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt
  • black peppers
  • 1 tbsp. wheat flour
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 400 g canned tomatoes without skin, chopped

Directions:

  • Wash chicken breasts, dry up with paper towel. Put on a large baking paper or plastic film, cover with it and beat with meat hammer or rolling pin, that everywhere breast was the same thickness. Then sprinkle with salt, peppers and wheat flour. Set a side and prepare tomato sauce.
  • Heat on a low heat pot with one tablespoon of oil. Add onions and bake for 5 minutes, till it becomes soft. Then add garlic and bake mixing for 10 seconds more.
  • Add chopped tomatoes with the juice and boil. Then lower the heat and let simmer for 20 minutes, till sauce will be thick. Season with salt and peppers.
  • Heat on a medium heat pan with another tablespoon of oil. Add chicken breasts and bake on both sides for 5-8 minutes. While baking oil sizzles a lot so we cover pan with smaller size lid and press a little bit. This helps to brown chicken breast evenly also. Baked chicken take out and serve right away with prepared tomato sauce. Enjoy!

Baked chicken livers with onion and tomato sauce

From the childhood we all know that livers are very healthy to eat, but knowing doesn’t mean that you do it. One day I decided to make chicken liver pate and they were very delicious but I had some liver leftover and started to look for some new recipe. I found it in one of my favourite books and it looked very similar to the dish that my mom used to make when I was a child. So I gave it a try and me and my hubby enjoyed it a lot! Sadly but my kids didn’t understand us and didn’t eat. But anyway now this recipe is one of my favourites, because it’s so quick that for making and eating it I spend less than an hour.

The weather is getting cold so I was looking for the warm food, but I didn’t want anything heavy so I suggest you to try this pasta dish with vegetables. It’s satisfying but refreshing at the same time (because of tomatoes).

Very juicy, fragrant chicken. Even little eaters can easily chew it. I tried both, chicken and turkey, and both tasted incredibly good.
