  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 oz chicken breasts boneless skinless that are cut in half lengthwise so it cooks faster
  • ¼ cup onion peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup white wine (whatever your drinking and/or replace with some chicken broth or water to deglaze your pan)
  • 1 cup tomatoes chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or sugar alternative
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cup basil roughly chopped


  • Place olive oil in pan, season chicken with salt and pepper on each side, heat up pan and add chicken to the pan. Cook on medium heat gently on both sides for about 3 minutes on each side or until juices run clear or no longer pink. (My mom used to lightly salt and pepper and flour her chicken before adding it to the pan, but due to my gluten allergies I left this step out)
  • Take chicken out of the frying pan and set aside and keep warm. Add onions and garlic and fry until translucent.
  • Add wine (and/or chicken broth) to deglaze pan. Cook until ½ evaporated. Add tomatoes, sugar or sugar subsitute, salt and pepper to taste and stir. Add chicken back to pan. Turn off burner and add fresh basil.
  • Drizzle your easy peasy chicken Italiano with a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to garnish and serve along side some delicious roasted vegetables, salad , risotto, polenta or pasta.


Easy Peasy Chicken Italiano is delicious with a fresh tossed salad. You can store this dish in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen up to 2 months.
