What You'll Need

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup water

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle chicken evenly with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. 
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 teaspoon oil. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate.
