Chicken with Onions and Tomatoes ~ recipe

Are you ready for another easy one? I mean, put it in the skillet, cover, and let cook. No standing over it waiting and turning and adding, etc. We loved this and it tasted so yummy!

chicken with onions and tomatoes


  • 6 pieces of chicken (I used large tenders and this is what fit in my skillet; use whatever fits)
  • 4-5 tablespoons of olive oil or your favorite cooking oil
  • 1 15 ounce can of petite diced tomatoes
  • one medium onion, sliced
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder – to taste

Directions –

Put the oil in the skillet and heat. Add chicken and sear on both sides. Add the tomatoes over the top. Layer the onions on. Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cover and let cook over medium heat about 30 minutes or until done.
Remove the chicken and simmer the tomatoes and onions until the liquid is gone. Watch so that it doesn’t burn.
Place the chicken in a serving dish and pour the onions and tomatoes over it. Serve.

I served this with brown rice, steamed broccoli, steamed cauliflower, and some corn. It was a filling, healthy, and yummy dinner. The girls discussed who was going to get the last piece of chicken. (Turned out – no one ate it since I had also decided to give them something sweet to eat – ice cream sodas – another yum!)

While this isn’t a 30 minute recipe, it is simple and doesn’t take even an hour start to finish. Most of that time, I wasn’t even tending to the cooking dishes. I did check them but didn’t have to hover. It was lovely.

Don’t you just love it when a meal goes well?

    So easy!! Good recipe to keep in mind for a night when I have time at home, but need to spend it doing other things rather than tending the stove.

    This kind of makes me think of chicken with pico!! Anything that I can throw together and walk away while it cooks is a winner in my book 😊

      Yes! I have done something similar with salsa of whatever kind we have in the fridge. It is good that way too.
