This simple dish of chicken braised in a chunky fresh tomato sauce takes only about 25 minutes to cook. If you start a pot of rice at the same time, it will be ready when the chicken is done.
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
2 Add the broth, lemon juice, oregano, and salt, and bring to a boil. Add the tomatoes and return to a boil.
3 Add the chicken and raisins to the pan. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Makes 4 servings
