Recipe Ingredients for Skillet Chicken with tomatoes, fennel and fresh thyme

16 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, plus additional to taste
2 cups Fennel
2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
1 3/4 cups crushed tomatoes

1 tsp thyme

Recipe Directions for Skillet Chicken with tomatoes, fennel and fresh thyme

  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towel and season with salt and black pepper. In a large braiser or heavy skillet, heat oil on medium-high. Add chicken and sear for 2 minutes per side, until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

  2. Reduce heat to medium, add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Stir in fennel, mushrooms, tomatoes, oregano and thyme. Return chicken to braiser, spooning vegetables and sauce over top. Cover and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken?s juices run clear and no pink remains. Remove and discard thyme.

  3. Divide mixture among serving plates, dividing evenly. Top with olives, fresh oregano and parsley, if desired.
