CREAMY TOMATO BASIL SKILLET CHICKEN

Ingredients
Chicken
  1. 4 chicken breasts
  2. 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  3. 1 tbsp dried basil
  4. salt & pepper

Creamy Tomato Basil Sauce
  1. 7 roma tomatoes
  2. 1/2 cup chicken stock
  3. 1/2 cup canned full fat coconut milk
  4. 2 garlic cloves or 1 tsp minced garlic
  5. 10 large fresh basil leaves
  6. 3/4 tsp salt
  7. 1/2 tsp pepper

To Finish
  1. handful cherry tomatoes
  2. 5 oz fresh spinach
  3. chopped fresh basil

Instructions
  • Slice your 4 chicken breasts horizontally to create 8 thin breast cutlets. (If you have a smaller skillet you can leave the breasts whole. I like them thin to soak up more sauce and cook faster.)
  • Add olive oil to skillet. Heat to medium high heat.
  • Add chicken to hot pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and dried basil on top of each breast. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip chicken. Cook until remaining side of chicken is browned, about 5 minutes. (It can take less time if you're using smaller cutlets so keep an eye on them.)
  • Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate.
