Low Calorie Chicken Skillet

We really like serving this chicken dish along with a hearty helping of italian polenta. It is such a comforting and well-balanced meal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 22 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes


  • Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsp italian seasoning


1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large, heavy skillet. Sprinkle the chicken breasts evenly with the salt and pepper, and cook the chicken breasts on each side for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

2. Remove the chicken from the pan, and keep warm. Add the onions and the garlic to the pan, and cook for about 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent. Add the tomatoes and italian seasoning to the pan, and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any bits of food. Return the chicken to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through.
