Tender Chicken for Two Recipe

Begin dinner with the delightful Tender Chicken for Two from Rosena Vrshek of Phoenix, Arizona. Instead of traditional tomatoes, her version of chicken cacciatore uses ketchup, which imparts a slightly sweet flavor. “Serve it with rice or mashed potatoes, “she suggests.

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)

"Super simple to prepare. I had a bag of frozen red, orange & yellow peppers in the freezer that I tossed a handful in the pan. Didn't have fresh, but a can of mushroom pieces and away we went! I really enjoyed it and will fix it again."
