White Wine Tomato Chicken

There are so many things I love about this recipe. When it comes to an easy chicken dinner, this one is the winner – White Wine Tomato Chicken. Perfect for busy weeknights.

Ah, wine. I get so much pleasure out of cooking with wine. Typically you want to cook with crisp, higher acidity white wines, such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc. I had a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc so I used that for this recipe.

As always, I try to use pasture raised chicken and organic veggies when possible. Nutritionally, a pasture raised chicken is far superior to traditionally raised chicken. Research has shown that pasture-raised chickens have higher levels of beneficial nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and beta-carotene than conventionally raised chickens. Buy farm-fresh Pasture Raised Chicken from local family farms. I got our chicken from KDE Farm.

It can be tough to cook healthy meals for your family during the week. However, you can make delicious and healthy meals in under 30 minutes with ingredients you’ve got in your pantry and fridge.
