    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Season chicken breasts on both sides with pepper and onion powder and arrange in the frying pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side, just until browned. Pour tomatoes and reserved liquid over the chicken. Pour in stock. Cover frying pan and continue cooking 15 minutes on each side, until chicken juices run clear.
    2. While the chicken is cooking, place the frozen mixed vegetables and water in a saucepan. Scoop about 175ml liquid from the frying pan and mix into the saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender; drain. Arrange chicken breasts over the vegetables and drizzle with liquid from the frying pan to serve.

    I put all the ingredients in the crock pot before work. When I came home, the house smelled wonderful! I followed the recipe as written (except I used diced tomatoes pre-seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano). A definite keeper! Tastes great over rice!  -  02 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I think the publisher of this recipe made a mistake when stating to use a TABLESPOON of pepper and 3 TABLESPOONS of onion powder??? I just seasoned the meat to my taste adding just a little extra pepper & onion powder and used all the liquid from the canned tomatoes. I also added a level tablespoon of sugar & salt to taste after adding all liquids. Omitted the frozen vegetables and just served with white rice and drizzled some of the liquid on the rice. All in all it came out superb and is definitely a keeper.  -  26 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I ended up not having the chicken broth so i just used the sauce from the tomatoes and i'm not a big fan of the onion powder so i used adobo instead either way it came out terrific it was very tender and i punctured the meat to allow everything to soak into it. my boyfriend loved it so really that is all that matters!! this is def on the top of my list of recipes!  -  24 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
