Here’s another simple, yet wonderfully flavored chicken and pasta dish! Chicken Pomodoro… a simple, yet flavorful meal, featuring chicken in a cream sauce with tomatoes and scallions, served over pasta.

How I Found This Recipe For Chicken Pomodoro

My husband and I had dinner at a friend’s home recently where we were served chicken piccata. Because our dinner was so delicious, I asked our hostess for the recipe. She graciously said yes.
When she printed a copy of the recipe and gave it to me, I noticed there were two recipes on the page. This recipe, for chicken pomodoro, is the OTHER recipe that was on the printed copy. Yum!
I have made chicken pomodoro twice since I received the recipe from my friend. It is really delicious, and from start to finish only takes about 30 minutes to prepare. What could be easier than that?
The sauce for the chicken tastes very fresh and light, enhanced by the flavor of green onions and fresh tomatoes. The sauce adds lots of FLAVOR to the tender pan-seared chicken cutlets and pasta.

I only took one picture of the finished chicken pomodoro dinner (my bad), but the directions are very easy to understand. Pretty confident that you will find cooking this meal is a breeze! Hope you will give it a try!

Ingredients
  • 4 chicken cutlets , lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, then dusted with flour. *Note: If not using cutlets, then cut 2 large chicken breasts in half (horizontally), place between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with meat mallet until thin.*
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh ripe tomatoes , chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup scallions or green onions , sliced (For Garnish)
  • 2 cups Linguine or Fettuccine pasta (cooked according to pkg. directions)
Instructions
  1. Season chicken cutlets. Dust with flour.
  2. In a non-stick skillet, heat the 2 Tablespoons oil to medium-high. When oil is hot, saute the cutlets on both sides until golden brown (this only takes a few minutes on each side). Remove the chicken cutlets to a platter (and keep warm); drain the fat from the pan.
  3. REMOVE THE SKILLET FROM THE FLAME OR COOK TOP and add the vodka to "deglaze" the skillet (It is VERY important not to blow yourself up, so remember to do this off the heat!)
  4. After adding the vodka to the skillet away from the flame, put the skillet back on the stove.
  5. Continue stirring (to get any tasty bits up from the bottom of the skillet) and cook the vodka until it is nearly evaporated.
  6. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice to the pan.
  7. Add the chicken cutlets back into the pan. Cook on each side for another minute. Remove the cutlets; place them on top of hot pasta on the serving platter or individual plates.
  8. Finish the sauce by adding the chopped tomatoes and whipping cream. Heat through, then spoon the sauce over the cutlets.
  9. Garnish the chicken with the scallions. Serve and enjoy!
