Pat Doherty


  • 1 14-1/2 oz (406 grm). can of diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 8 oz (224 grm). water
  • 1 packet of Lipton onion soup
  • 2 whole chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 lb (.2 kg). sliced fresh mushrooms, optional
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) canola oil
  • Heat oil in large non-stick skillet.
  • Quickly brown chicken breasts on each side.
  • Add mushrooms and saute for 5 min.
  • Mix canned tomatoes, water and 1 packet of Lipton onion soup together.
  • Add this mixture to skillet, baste chicken and cover.
  • Cook chicken on medium heat for 10 min.
  • Turn chicken over, baste and uncover.
  • Cook for another 10 - 15 minutes depending on thickness of chicken breasts.
Sauce should be reduced by half. Make sure it doesn't evaporate entirely. Great served with couscous. I use Near East brand. Cooks up in 5 min. and doesn't require any oil or butter in cooking process.

Reheats nicely, so it can be made ahead.
