Super Quick Chicken & Tomatoes

Super Quick Chicken & Tomatoes

This is a tomato stew with chicken and whatever vegetables you have in your fridge.
This is one of my family's most favorite dishes.
It's super easy so you can make it in no time.

Ingredients: for 4 servings

Chicken breast
200 g
1 medium
Eggplant - small Japanese type
Green pepper
Mushroom (Shiitake, Enoki, Shimeji, Eringi)
as much as you like
Frozen okra (or frozen vegetable mix)
as much as you like
3 - 5 cloves
Canned tomatoes
1 can (240 g)
15 - 30 g
Melting sliced cheese
1 - 2
Powdered bouillon
2 tablespoons
Sake, Salt, Pepper, Soy sauce
a small amount
Ketchup, powdered konbu dashi stock
as much as you like


1. Cut vegetables into bite sizes. Cut the chicken into cubes. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and sake.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a wok, and fry the finely chopped garlic over low heat. Be sure not to burn it.
3. Add the chicken, veggies and mushrooms. Stir-fry well and season. When cooked through, add the canned tomatoes and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil.
4. Adjust the taste with butter, seasonings and cheese. Mix it and it's done.
5. I use chopped garlic by Momoya to make it easier.
6. Frozen sliced okra and frozen vegetable mix are useful for various dishes.
7. Use plenty of bouillon. Add soy sauce for a hidden flavor. Powdered kombu dashi stock goes well with western dishes. To make the taste richer, add butter and cheese.
8. If you like lighter taste, add a lot of balsamic vinegar and olive oil instead of butter and cheese. It will be completely different.
