Chicken PomodoroPoultry

Active Time: 30 minutes
Start to Finish: 30 minutes


  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. heavy cream
  • cup minced scallions
  • all-purpose flour, for dusting
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup chopped tomatoes, peeled and seeded
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup vodka
  • 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts


To make chicken cutlets, cut each breast into 3 pieces by cutting off the bottom, thinner half, and then cut the remaining, thicker half in half horizontally.

Season the cutlets with salt and pepper, then dust with flour. Sauté the cutlets in oil until cooked through. Transfer to a platter; pour off the fat in the pan. AWAY FROM FLAME, deglaze the pan with vodka and cook until the vodka is nearly gone. Add broth and lemon juice. Return the cutlets to the pan and cook each side 1 minute. Transfer the cutlets to a warm platter. Add the tomatoes and cream to finish the sauce. Heat through, then pour over the cutlets. Garnish with the scallions.

Storing tomatoesStoring tomatoes
Never store a tomato in the refrigerator. If you slice a tomato and don't use all of it, place the tomato upside down on a plate. Store the plate on the counter for up to 1 day.

Peeling a tomatoPeeling a tomato
To peel a tomato, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut an "X" in the bottom of the tomato, and place it in the boiling water for 30-60 seconds. If the tomato is not really ripe, it may take longer-- watch for the skin around the X to start to come loose. Place the tomato in a bowl of ice water, leave for about a minute, then remove. The skin should peel right off. If you only have a few tomatoes to peel, it's probably easier to simply use a vegetable peeler.

De-seeding a tomatoDe-seeding a tomato
To de-seed a tomato, cut it in half crosswise (lengthwise if you are using a plum tomato.) Holding the tomato over the sink or the garbage, scoop out the seeds in each of the cavities with your little finger.
