INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoon dried basil, divided
  • A few sprigs fresh thyme, picked, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup dry white wine (can use water instead)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (fresh or dried)
  • 1/3 cup cream

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium sized pan.
  2. Season the chicken breasts with 1 teaspoon dried basil, half the fresh thyme, salt, and pepper.

  5. Add the butter to the pan and melt.
  6. Add the diced onions and cook for 4 minutes.
  7. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

  10. Place chicken back in the pan.
  11. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 8
