Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 large or 4 small skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1/2 small green bell pepper , or 1 stalk celery
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup white or red wine , optional
  • 1 to 2 bay leaves , optional

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until lightly golden, about 3 to 4 minutes for each side. Add onion and cook until just beginning to soften, about 1 minute.
  • Add green pepper and sliced mushrooms. Pour pasta sauce over top. Stir in wine and tuck in bay leaves for extra flavour. Reduce heat to medium and cover frying pan. Cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting heat so mixture gently bubbles, until chicken pieces feel springy to the touch and sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Serve over hot noodles or steamed rice.
