Sweet-and-Salty Tomato Chicken

  • This is the best chicken recipe I've ever made!  What I love the most about it is it's so unique; I've never tasted anything like it before.  It tastes like something prepared at a five-star restaurant.  The tomato sauce has the perfect amount of sweet and salty, and the red wine makes it oh-so savory.  It's light, but tastes rich and comforting all at the same time.  And the result is so incredibly tender.  It broke apart very easily; I didn't even need a knife!  Oh -- and the sauce is the best part.  The sauce is awesome dipped with bread, or poured over rice. yummy!  Add the amount of cayenne and red pepper flakes based on how spicy you like it.  I served this with a side of green beans and some crusty, french bread, and it was a phenomenal meal.
