Mediterranean Chicken

Serves 2 hungry boyfriends
Makes great leftovers!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sweet onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, sliced into matchsticks
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pinch of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup of Marsala wine
1/4 cup of water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons honey
4 boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded moderately thin

1.  Heat oil in a large skillet (12 in) over medium heat.  Add onions and saute for 5 minutes, or until translucent.  Add garlic and saute for 1 minute until fragrant.  Stir in tomato puree, rosemary, oregano, red pepper flakes, wine, water, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer over medium-low heat for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Stir in honey and simmer for another minute.

2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Bring sauce to a boil and add the chicken.  Cook for 5 minutes.  Cover the pan, lower the heat to medium-low, and cook for another 5 minutes.  Turn chicken, cover, and cook another 5 minutes, or until cooked through (if you press the chicken with your finger, it should feel very firm).

3.  Take the chicken out and set aside.  Let the sauce simmer over medium-low heat for another 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.

4.  Serve your boyfriend.   Place 2 pieces of chicken on a dinner plate and spoon over some sauce.  Sprinkle some parsley or cilantro over the food (optional), and dinner is served!
