30 Minute Chicken Tomato Stew

When life becomes busy this might be a quick way to serve a nutritious dinner under 30 minutes. Let’s go.


  • 3 slices bacon, thinly sliced
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp. Crisco oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 pkg. white mushrooms (227g)
  • 1 can white navy beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups stewed tomatoes
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar

In a large skillet, cook the bacon only until the fat renders (about 2 minutes).

Add the chicken and cook, stirring until brown, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon and remove from the pan. Set aside.

In the same skillet, cook the onion, until clear, add the garlic and thyme and cook about a minute. Add the mushrooms and 2 tbsp. water, until the mushrooms are tender and there is no liquid remaining.

Return the chicken to the skillet, stir in the beans, tomatoes, salt, pepper and wine, and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the stew has thickened and the chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove from the heat, add the parsley and vinegar.

This would best be served over buttered broad noodles and a green salad.

Now, eat and off to the game or sporting event that is important to your family.
