recipe: pan-fried chicken & tomato sauté
I’m always up for finding more ways to eat tomatoes. You see, for the longest time, I’ve had the biggest aversion to tomatoes because of their texture. Now, I’ll eat salsa and spaghetti sauce and ketchup but a whole slice of tomato? No way. However, I’m trying to get over said-aversion by using diced tomatoes in my cooking. I still get the flavor and tomato-goodness but I’m no longer gagging over the texture.
Anyways, we enjoyed this recipe from Epicurious and it will definitely make an appearance again in our meal-plan rotation! (served with sauteed sliced zucchini and leftover fried rice)

2. Add shallots to pan, cook for 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, white wine, capers & brine. Cook for about 2 minutes, then stir in basil. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
