Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1

    large red bell pepper, cut into ½-inch-wide strips

  • 1

    large yellow bell pepper, cut into ½-inch-wide strips

  • 1

    cup vertically sliced yellow onion

  • 3

    garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 1

    cup halved grape tomatoes

  • 2

    tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

  • 2

    teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • ¾

    teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 2

    (8-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • ½

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • tablespoons butter

Directions

1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add bell peppers; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onion and garlic; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes; cook 1 minute or until tomatoes wilt. Remove from heat; stir in basil, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. 2. While pepper mixture cooks, cut each breast half in half horizontally to form 4 cutlets. Cover cutlets with plastic wrap; pound to 1/3-inch thickness with a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Discard plastic wrap; sprinkle chicken evenly with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Dredge in flour; shake off excess. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden and done. Serve chicken with bell pepper mixture.
