  • 1-2 lbs Chicken Breast boneless/skinless
  • 28 oz Can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 8 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cayenne

  • Prepare chicken slicing breast down. Pat dry with paper towel.
  • Season both sides with salt and pepper.


  • In a non-stick pan, add olive oil and 2 tbsp butter over medium-high heat. Once butter is melted, add chicken in a single layer. Cook 4 minutes on each side until brown. Transfer to plate. Cook in batches if pan is not large enough.
  • Cool pan by reducing heat to medium-low. Add garlic, cook until brown (1 minute). Stir in crushed tomatoes and cayenne, loosening brown buts in pan. Add 2 tbsp of butter, increase heat to a simmer. Add salt and pepper stirring occasionally. Simmer 5 minutes until thick.
  • Reduce pan heat to barely a simmer, placing chicken in pan. Top with Italian seasoning, cooking several minutes until sauce is absorbed some.


Serve on top of pasta.
