2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 medium onion, chopped

One and one-half 14.5-ounce cans whole tomatoes

4 skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup chopped broccoli

1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper

1/3 cup chopped yellow bell pepper

1/3 cup sliced mushrooms

2 fresh bay leaves

2 sprigs fresh thyme

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium pan over medium heat, add the oil and saute the onions until translucent. Add the tomatoes to the pan and squash them to form liquid. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the chicken breasts, broccoli, red and yellow bell peppers, mushrooms, bay leaves and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 15 minutes depending on thickness.
