Yet another easy peasy recipe that for sure makes you and your family bring to the dinner table faster and happier. I was kind of bored with pasta. I knew I was making roasted potatoes and chicken. So to go with potatoes, I made this saucy chicken. And I thought it was a smart move because not only did it paired great with roasted potatoes, the leftovers made a great sandwich.
Here’s how I made it.
Chicken in Red Sauce
4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can pasta sauce
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
A few basil leaves, julienned
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp oil
4 slices of Provolone cheese
Heat oil in a skillet on medium high heat.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken breasts.
Sear the chicken in hot skillet until nice brown crust is formed
Remove from the heat, keep it warm.
Heat another pot and add 1 tbsp oil.
Saute onion and garlic for 2 minutes.
Add pasta sauce and bring it to boil
Heat oven to 400° F.
Place chicken in an oven proof dish, pour sauce over chicken.
Place cheese slices on chicken and cover and bake for about 15 minutes.
Uncovered and bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is browned.
Garnish with basil leaves.
