Chicken pomodoro with vodka cream sauce recipe

Adapted from Thyme

Serves 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup tomatoes chopped or halved
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions


  1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook about 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness, until cooked through, flipping occasionally. Remove to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.
  3. Add the vodka to deglaze the pan, scraping up all the brown bits from the chicken. Add the chicken broth, lemon juice and cream. Simmer about 4-5 minutes until thickened.
  4. Toss in the tomatoes and let cook until softened.
  5. Spoon the tomatoes and sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with scallions.
