This Spanish chicken dish is as easy as it is attractive, with bright red sun-dried tomatoes and green basil. Garlic and sun-dried tomatoes are sautéed together and mixed with chicken breasts, then sprinkled with fresh basil. Serve with rustic bread or home-fried potatoes.

What You'll Need

  • 2 - 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cloves​ garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 4 tablespoon virgin​ olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • salt to taste

How to Make It

  1. To help the chicken cook faster, and evenly, slice breasts to approximately 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick. Set aside.
  2. Chop basil leaves and set aside.
  3. Peel and slice the garlic. Pour the olive oil into a large frying pan and heat on medium. When hot, add garlic to the pan and sauté, stirring often. Add the tomatoes and continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes. Remove tomatoes and garlic from pan, leaving the oil.
  4. Raise heat on pan to medium-high. Sauté chicken breasts in same oil until they are cooked on both sides. Add a few more tablespoons olive oil if necessary.​
  1. Return the garlic and tomatoes to pan to warm. Mix in the chopped basil and cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately with fried potatoes or rustic bread.
