It usually takes hours to prepare a stew. Not here. Twenty minutes of cook time is all you need for enjoyment of this Caprese salad-inspired chicken “stew.”

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 1 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 oz Organic Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Low Sodium Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Organic Grape Tomatoes
  • 2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 oz Fresh Mozzarella Pearls
  • 8 leaf fresh basil leaves

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat the oil in a medium (PFOA-free) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breast, sprinkle with salt and cook until browned on both sides, but not fully cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
2 Add the broth, tomatoes, garlic and vinegar to the skillet; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until the chicken is fully cooked and tomatoes are softened, about 12 minutes.
3 Remove from heat. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Smash the tomatoes in the skillet with a fork. Thinly slice the chicken.
4 Stir the chicken and warm quinoa into the tomato mixture in the skillet. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the cheese and basil.
