Tomato Cream Sauce over Grilled Chicken Breast
Too many tomatoes from your garden? Tomato cream sauce poured over freshly grilled chicken breast is one way to use some of them. I do it every year when I plant my garden. I get happy and put too many plants in the ground, and end up hunting ways to use all those tomatoes. Making this tomato cream sauce to pour over grilled chicken breast is one delicious way I’ve found to use those tomatoes. You can even invite some friends over if you really have a lot of tomatoes and have a outdoor cookout because this recipe lends itself well to being adjusted for more. Simply increase the ingredients according to how many people you are cooking those tomatoes for! So let’s get to cooking!!
Tomato Cream Sauce over Grilled Chicken Breast Ingredients:
4 chicken breast (Bone-in or boneless chicken breast is fine. The tomato cream sauce is delicious with both.)
¼ cup olive oil (Enough to brush the chicken breast with a couple times and you grill it.)
3 tablespoons butter
2 to 3 medium size tomatoes, chopped
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
? to ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder (this recipe is easy, all depends on how much you like garlic.)
1 chopped shallot
? cup sweet vermouth
½ cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper
Tomato Cream Sauce over Grilled Chicken Breast Instructions:
Lightly coat chicken breast with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Then place on the grill over a medium heat and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, brush with olive oil and turn. Cook 3 to 5 more minutes. Continue like this until the grilled chicken breast is done, but not dry. Remove to a serving platter and cover with foil to keep it warm.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat then add shallot and cook until it’s soft. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the vermouth and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
Pour the sauce into a food processor and puree until smooth. Pour it back into the saucepan, stir in the heavy cream and let simmer for 2 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
Tomato cream sauce and the grilled chicken will go great with Alfredo noodles, garlic bread and a fresh salad made with veggies from your garden.
