Saucy Chicken

This is a super-easy, super-fast dish made with that weeknight staple: the boneless chicken breast. Again, you can vary this so many ways that you’ll never have to make it the same way twice. This recipe serves 2 but is easily multiplied.

  1. Heat 1 tbsp. oil over medium-high.
  2. Cube ½ lb. boneless chicken breast and toss with seasoning.
  3. Saute some aromatics until golden. Onion is always appropriate, and may be all you need. But anything goes, depending on your flavor theme.
  4. Add the chicken and brown.
  5. Add a selection of cubed or sliced vegetables and saute to brown. Almost anything goes here, or you can omit this step altogether if you want a plain chicken dish.
  6. Add ½ cup stock or water.
  7. Season. This is a good chance to add some unique flavor to the dish. Think beyond herbs and spices. For instance, I have added soy sauce, hot sauce and pesto. You can even vary the cooking liquid to punch up the flavor — try coconut milk, for instance.
  8. Reduce the heat to medium and let simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through and there is a nice sauce.
  9. For a complete meal, serve over pasta, rice or couscous.
