(I have no idea what “pomodoro chicken” actually means, but that’s what the recipe calls it so let’s go with it.)
In today’s rendition of Chicken Is Boring, I present a not-at-all boring chicken dish. It’s quick and simple to put together, and a far cry from your blah chicken suppers. I served this with jasmine rice, which was divine after being sprinkled with scallions and soaking up some of the sauce.
Pomodoro Chicken with Tomato Vodka Cream
adapted via Thyme
1 lb chicken (cutlets or tenderloins)
1/4 cup vodka
1/2 cup chicken broth
juice of one lemon
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/3 cup scallions, minced or sliced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Season cutlets with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Remove chicken to a plate.
Deglaze pan with vodka and allow to simmer until the vodka is mostly gone. Add broth and lemon juice and let simmer 2-3 minutes. Add chicken to pan and cook 1 minute each side. Again remove chicken to a plate.
Add tomatoes and cream and reduce 5 minutes, or until sauce forms. Pour sauce over chicken, top with chopped scallions.
