What do you make when it is Thanksgiving week and you’re up to your elbows in the prep for the holiday and then you realize you need to get dinner on the table shortly? Well, with a few basic ingredients and a pressure cooker you can make this in about 40 or so minutes, counting prep time and all!
I’m sorry for the horrid picture but as I went to take the pics the camera decided to yell that it needed new batteries and off it went. Oh well I thought I was prepared since it also happened not too long ago and I had bought a large package of the size it needed. Unfortunately what I forgot was that when we had the power outage last week for quite a while I had used them in all the lanterns and flashlights in the house and now they were all pretty weak too, none of them were strong enough to get more than this lousy picture. I think it is time for me to get a new camera………and maybe even learn to use it!
Chicken and Tomatoes
2 large bone in skinless chicken breasts or any parts you prefer
1 28 ounce can of whole plum tomatoes
1 clove garlic minced fine
1/2 small onion, diced fine
2 teaspoons of mixed Italian seasoning
1/4 cup of dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Brown the chicken in just a tiny bit of oil in a pressure cooker, add the seasonings and the garlic and onion and saute a few minutes. Add the white wine and then the tomatoes on top, do not stir the tomatoes into the wine yet. Close the top on the cooker and bring it up to high pressure, cook for 15 minutes and then remove from heat or shut the cooker off and allow the pressure to reduce naturally, stir the contents and break up the tomatoes if you like. See easy and really quick! We had this with some Colavita Long Ziti pasta, I love this stuff and it is great in casseroles too, layered with cheese and meats and baked like you would do a lasagna.
In case I don’t get a chance to post before Thanksgiving I hope you all have a wonderfull holiday, shared with good family, friends and food!
