Chicken with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

This is an easy chicken dish that tastes so flavorful thanks to the combination of perfectly ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. Fantastic for a late summer dinner!

Serves 4

  • 4 chicken cutlets or 2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded thin = 4 escalopes de poulet fines
  • Salt & pepper = sel et poivre
  • A few tablespoons flour = quelques cuillères de farine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil = 2 cuillères à soupe d'huile d'olive
  • ¼ cup white wine = 60 ml de vin blanc
  • ½ cup chicken broth = 120 ml de bouillon de poulet
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped = 2 tomates, coupées en dés
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream = 2 cuillères à soupe de crème fraiche liquide
  • A few basil leaves, chopped = quelques feuilles de basilic frais, ciselées

Season cutlets with salt and pepper, sprinkle with flour and shake to remove excess.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pan. Sauté cutlets on both sides and transfer to a plate.

Deglaze pan with wine and cook until almost all evaporated. Add broth and return cutlets and their juices to pan. Cook for a couple minutes until done. Transfer cutlets to a serving platter. Stir chopped tomatoes and heavy cream into sauce in the pan. Heat through and pour over cutlets. Garnish with fresh basil. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
