Rustic Tomato Chicken Sauce



The Princess has been busy. So when Sunday came around I was like what the week is over ( or starting) already! It was like a slap. Because the past few days have been crazy. We had a washer woman ( no washing machines in Buttermilk Springs) who used to work for us come and scream outside our royal gates. Yes, Buttermilk Springs is that type of country. This woman did not exactly work. She came into our house would find a place in the palace to sleep for a few hours and at 5pm would come out with her eyes red from sleep and scream, ” Is it 6:30, yet?”. So Mother Princess had to stop that. The washer woman stood outside our gates for 10 minutes shouting and screaming and abusing us. She screamed and screamed some more until my Mother talked to her ( quite nicely for someone who had just ambushed her) settled whatever she was shouting about and left. And that was my week. Weird,freaky things like that kept happening.Oh, the recipe that’s why you came here well if you’ve read this far your in for a  treat. This tomato sauce was delicious. And quick and simple. I love it over pasta but rice will do. Or maybe bread. And it’s from Martha!  Rustic Tomato Sauce with Chicken

 adapted from Martha Stewart’s Website


4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 pounds

Coarse salt and ground pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound mushrooms, trimmed and quartered ( optional)

2 garlic cloves, 1 can (14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large (5-quart) saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Cook chicken, turning when it easily releases from the pan, until golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let it rest for a while.  Add mushrooms(if you’re using them) cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, tomatoes, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, until tomatoes have broken down, 10 to 15 minutes.  Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan; cover, and cook until chicken is opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn chicken to coat with sauce, and serve.  Your house will smell amazing and yes you can dip the bread in this sauce.
