Sofrito Chicken - Wins Approval

Sofrito Chicken = Husband's Approval

I found this recipe on Gina's Weight Watcher Recipies yesterday and made it last night. I thought it was pretty good and Husband really liked it...I think its a keeper! Oh and for your information its really healthy, but then I changed it some and made it a little healthier {and household friendly!}. It makes enough for me, Husband and a full leftover meal. So here it is...

olive oil
3 shallots chopped
3 garlic cloves chopped
1 can petite diced tomatoes
~1.5 tsp ground cumin
~2 tsp garlic powder
3 skinless chicken breasts
chicken broth
1 bunch fresh cilantro chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Add oil to a deep skillet and allow to heat. Sauté the shallots and garlic until soft and move to the perimeter of pan. Season chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then place in middle of pan and allow to brown on both sides until fully cooked. Add tomatoes and cumin to pan and allow to take on a darker red color. Add the broth and 3/4 of the cilantro. Cover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with some fresh cilantro on top!

Sounds yummy doesn't it?

So what have you been cooking?
