by on Sep.10, 2011, under Chicken, Entrees, Pasta

Tomatoes, Canned, 1 Can 28oz
Bay Leaf, 1 Each
Oregano, Dried, 1 Tsp.
Thyme, 1 Tsp.
Celery, Fine Chopped, 1/4 Cup
Onion, White, Finely Chopped, 1/4 Cup
Cheese, Parmesan, 2 Tbsp.
Garlic, Fresh, Minced, 1 Clove
Fettuccine, Cooked, 2 Cups
Parsley, 1 Tbsp.
Vinegar, Red Wine, 1 Tbsp.
Chicken, Breast, Boneless, 4 Each, Skinless
Water, 1 Tbsp.

1.  For the sauce, in a medium saucepan, combine the onions and the 1 tablespoon water. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. (If necessary, add more water during cooking to prevent the onions from browning.)
2.  Stir in the tomatoes (with juices), the 1 1/2 cups water, celery, parsley, vinegar, oregano, thyme, garlic and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Gently simmer, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until the sauce is the desired consistency. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
3.  Meanwhile, spray an unheated large skillet with no-stick spray. Heat the skillet over medium heat. Rinse the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Add to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the chicken over and cook for 4 to 6 minutes more or until the chicken is no longer pink.
4.  To serve, slice each chicken breast half at an angle into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Then arrange the slices, fanning them, on top of the fettuccine. Spoon some sauce over each serving and sprinkle with the cheese. Serve with the remaining sauce.
