Chicken Tequila

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on August 29, 2023

When I was working at a local hospital, their cafeteria was known for their chicken tequila recipe.  It  was delicious!  I don’t have the recipe, and can’t quite remember the ingredients either.  However, I tried to re-invent a healthier version than the one I remembered.

2 skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite size pieces

1 TB plus 1 tsp. olive oil

¼ cup diced onions

¼ cup diced celery

1 clove garlic, minced

2 cups diced roma tomatoes

½ cup tequila

1 tsp. chicken or vegetable “Better than Bouillon” soup base

½ tsp. salt

2 tsp. dried oregano

Shaved or grated parmesan cheese

 

Heat a large saucepan and add 1 TB olive oil.  Sprinkle with ¼ tsp. salt and heat until the chicken is lightly browned.  Remove it from the pan.

Add 1 tsp. olive oil and add in the onions, celery, and garlic clove.  Sprinkle with ¼ tsp. salt. Cook until the onions are translucent.

Add diced tomatoes, tequila, soup base, oregano, and your browned chicken.  Heat for approximately 5 minutes, or a little longer to make sure the tomatoes are broken up.

Lower to heat to simmer, and cover for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve over your favorite pasta.
