Skillet Chicken in Tomato Sauce

Valentine's Dinner pic4

This is a gorgeous simple dish, tasty and beautiful. You only need enough tomato sauce to generously coat the chicken, a deliciously good looking dish perfect for everyday meals and special occasions. The recipe is great for making shrimp and tilapia fillets as well. In Hong Kong, a popular Cantonese cuisine 茄汁煎大蝦 (ketchup shrimp) is done almost the same way. The lovely sweet and sour flavor balanced well with seafood, chicken or pork.
