Mediterranean Chicken with Wine Recipe



Here is a great sauce that goes well with chicken. This is bursting with freshness. Mushrooms, peppers, capers, celery, olives and a little white wine.  All will compliment kind of pasta or rice you serve this with. We love to serve this over a penne pasta tossed with garlic and olive oil. Sprinkled heavy with grating cheese.

Mediterranean Chicken with Wine



6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil first cold pressed
8 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 1/2 pounds of baby bella mushrooms some whole some sliced
2 bell peppers sliced and 1 stalk celery cut up
1 1/2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
1/3 cups Kalamata olives
4 ripe plum tomatoes cut up
1 1/2 cups canned whole tomatoes pulsed still chunky
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 fresh basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 tablespoons of capers optional
3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
grated cheese, crumbled feta cheese
