It's the low-calorie version of a recipe that uses Alfredo sauce and pasta. It was given to me by my good friend, Staci. She's on of those cooks who throws a bunch of items into a pot and it always comes out divine!
Prep and Cook Time: about 30 minutes.
Yield: Makes 4 servings
|Sonoma Chicken and Roasted Zucchini|
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 boned skinned chicken breast halves (8 oz. each)
- 2 large white onion, minced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 8 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, halved
- 1/4 cup sliced oil-marinated sun-dried tomatoes
- About 1/2 tsp. salt
- About 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup sliced basil
- 1/4 cup freshly and finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy ovenproof frying pan (not nonstick) over high heat until oil is hot but not smoking. Add chicken breasts, top side down, and cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn chicken over.
2. Add onions and garlic to pan with chicken, stirring occasionally so garlic doesn't burn, until onions are soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper and cook until mixture begins to boil, about 1 minute.
3. Cover pan and put in oven. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until chicken is just cooked through (cut to check). Transfer chicken to a plate.
4. Season artichoke heart-sun-dried tomato-stock mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Divide vegetables among 4 rimmed plates or shallow pasta bowls, top each with a piece of chicken, and spoon sauce over all. Garnish with sliced basil and Parmesan cheese.
