Tuscan Chicken with White Beans, Tomatoes, and Oregano......

How about a recipe with less than 10 minutes prep time and 10 minutes cooking time?  That's what you'll get with this protein-rich meal.  Another find from Robin Takes 5, by Robin Miller.

Tuscan Chicken with White Beans, Tomatoes, and Oregano

1        tablespoon olive oil
4        cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2  pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1        teaspoon dried oregano
1        (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
1        (15 ounce) can white beans (Great Northern or cannellini), rinsed and drained

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add the chicken and cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown on all sides, stirring frequently.  Add the oregano and cook for 1 minute, until the oregano is fragrant.  Add the tomatoes and beans and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.  Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper before serving.

So few ingredients!  I love that you can get diced tomatoes that are already flavored too!

This is one of those recipes I should be able to throw together anytime, because I always have the items in my pantry.  We loved the flavors too, and I'm thinking they could be a start to a white chicken chili in the future.....what do you think?

Have a wonderful day!
