There are normally only two of us eating in this house and so I normally try to cut recipes in half for us, or create dishes which are simple and make just enough for two. It's not that hard to do really. And you can normally multiply up with no problems at all.
I found myself with an abundance of cherry tomatoes on Saturday last and so I decided that I would incorporate them somehow into our supper. I also had chicken breasts. Chicken and tomatoes go really well together. One only need to look at delicious recipes such as Chicken Cacciatore or Chicken Parmesan to see that this is true.
This recipe goes together very quickly so I would suggest you have all of the ingredients ready and hand before you start. The chicken breasts are cut into two escallopes horizontally which makes for quick cooking . . .
The cherry tomatoes are cut in half as well, for quick cooking. I saw a really interesting and helpful little video on how to that really quickly the other day. You can see it here. It's a slap on the forehead, why didn't I think of that kind of a thing! (It really does work!)
The tomatoes are quickly frizzed in some olive oil along with some garlic. You dust the chicken pieces with some flour and salt and pepper and then brown them in the same pan, along with some sage. It doesn't take very long at all as they are only half as thick as they normally are.
A splash of white wine, a few capers . . . . bubble bubble bubble, a handful of chopped parsley and presto chango, you have tender moist chicken with a delicious sauce of cherry tomatoes and capers, that will please any meat loving man. The Toddster loves this. I always serve it with some boiled new potatoes. It goes down a real treat, and goes together lickety split. If you are looking for a quick, easy and delicious supper and are feeling a tad bit lazy, this is your perfect meal! Looks like you slaved all day, but took literally minutes.
