Equipment

  • 1 Skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 24 oz skinless - boneless chicken breasts (I used 6 4oz breasts)
  • 1 large onion - diced
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups fat free chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary - minced
  • 2 tsp fresh sage - minced
  • 4 whole cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Spray a large, deep, nonstick skillet with nonfat cooking spray and set over medium high heat.
  • Cook chicken until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Deglaze the pan with about 1 tbsp of the wine, and then add in the onion and garlic and sauté until tender and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in salt & pepper, sage, rosemary, and cloves, and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in tomato paste and wine, and bring to a boil while stirring up the browned bits.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, and add in the broth. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to medium low and cook until chicken is cooked through about 20-25 minutes. Make sure to keep spooning the liquid over the chicken while cooking. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
