Savory Braised Chicken with Vegetables Recipe

This family favorite tastes much more complicated than it actually is!—Michelle Collins, Lake Orion, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound fresh baby carrots
  • 1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • Sliced French bread baguette, optional


  • 1. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts in bread crumbs to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  • 2. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken in batches; cook 2-4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan.
  • 3. Add broth, tomato paste and seasonings to same pan; cook over medium-high heat, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Add vegetables and chicken; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 25-30 minutes or until vegetables are tender and a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°. If desired, serve with baguette. Yield: 6 servings.

"I used yellow squash to hold up a little more than the zucchini but did add the veggies later as someone suggested. I really liked this recipe because it's so versatile. Had to cut down on the salt for my hubby so used broth and tomato paste with no-salt added and a salt substitute for the salt it calls for. Good easy recipe."

"Yum. This is a very tasty one pot meal. I dipped the chicken in milk before the bread crumbs. The next time I'll add the zucchini and mushrooms a little later in the process."

"Excellent flavors, however the carrots & zucchini turned mushy when cooked with chicken for 25-30 minutes. When I make it next time, I'll add them in later so they won't over-cook. Good healthy dish!"
