TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: An Italian chicken recipe that’s easy to make

This recipe comes from one of my readers who wanted to remain anonymous. Their grandparents made this chicken all the time, especially when family or friends dropped by their home.

I know everyone has a favorite Italian chicken recipe. I know I do, but it takes so long to make, and it also has a lot more ingredients.

This recipe is so easy and tastes wonderful. It’s also easy to double or make for 1 or 2.

I like to add green peppers and onions to taste, but it’s great as-is.

Easy Italian Chicken

4 boneless chicken breasts

1 can (14 1⁄2 ounces) Italian stewed tomatoes

1 can (4 ounces) mushrooms

1⁄2 teaspoon basil

1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1⁄3 cup cold water

Hot cooked spaghetti

Spray a large skillet.

Cook chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side or until done. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring tomatoes, mushrooms, basil and garlic powder to a boil.

Combine cornstarch and water; add to tomato mixture.

Return to boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Serve chicken over hot spaghetti; top with sauce.
