Chicken with Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Deliciously healthy weeknight fast Chicken with Tomatoes and Mushrooms. Simple one pan chicken stewed in a garlic tomato sauce with mushrooms. 


  • 4-6 chicken breasts or thighs pounded or cut to an even thickness
  • 1/3 cup flour all purpose or your gluten-free equivalent of choice
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 28 ounce can stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms sliced


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet (preferably cast iron)on medium heat.
  2. Dredge chicken in flour. Brown the chicken in the skillet, adding the garlic to the pan about halfway (to prevent it from scorching).
  3. Add tomatoes and mushrooms, stirring to loosen the flour on the bottom of the skillet. Reduce heat and simmer for 20- 25 minutes until the chicken is cooked completely and the sauce has begun to thicken.
