"One of my husband's favorites. I've been making this for over fifteen years, and he's not sick of it yet! Serve with pan sauces, crusty French bread and a tossed green salad."

  1. In a shallow dish or bowl, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and ground black pepper. Coat chicken breasts with flour mixture. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown chicken on all sides. Remove from skillet, and drain on paper towels.
  2. In the same skillet, combine the tomatoes, water, brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, chili powder, mustard, celery seed, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and return chicken to skillet. Cover, and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is tender, no longer pink and juices run clear.

This recipe is one of our staples. We have been making it for the last year. We do make a couple changes though. We reduce the amount of chicken breast halves from six to two. Also, we cube ...

A fine and easy recipe. I agree with other reviewers that red wine for water and white wine for vinegar worked well. I also added fresh sliced mushrooms and sliced red onions once the simmering ...

I always add a chopped onion to this too for great flavor and texture. 11/1/06: This was EX-cellent! I reduced the chili powder to 1/2 the amount, used 1/2 the amount of water so that I could d...

This was good but not great. My husband really enjoyed it. I'll make it again because it's so easy and will cut back on the chile powder. This tasted a little too much like chili. There wasn...
