This quick-cooking, high-protein chicken dish is perfect for any weeknight. Here, we cook down cherry tomatoes with a little wine until they burst and become jammy—making a luscious sauce to pair with chicken. A pinch of sugar at the end balances the sauce's acidity.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, flipping once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving plate.

  • Add tomatoes, wine, garlic and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until the liquid has thickened and the tomatoes have burst, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley, sage, butter and sugar. Serve over the chicken.
