Fresh fennel is the tasty addition to lean chicken breasts served with a light tomato sauce and capers. It's nice for the family and special enough for entertaining.
Split chicken breast in half horizontally to form two thin cutlets. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken piece with the salt and pepper. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; add oil and heat skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook about 6 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Transfer chicken to a plate; cover with foil and keep warm.
Add fennel, shallot, and garlic to skillet; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add undrained tomatoes; cook about 2 minutes more or until fennel is tender. Stir in parsley, capers, and Italian seasoning; cook for 1 more minute. Serve immediately over chicken. Makes 2 servings (1 chicken piece with 1/2 cup tomato mixture).
