Stewed tomatoes make this chicken extra-tender and the hominy is a tasty and unique addition!
3 tablespoons olive oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch wide strips
3 14.5 oz cans Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
1 29.5 oz can hominy, drained or 3 cups whole kernel corn
1 tablespoon chili powder or to taste
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 Heat olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat.
2 Add chicken to the skillet and sauté until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
3 Add tomatoes, hominy and chili powder and bring to a boil.
4 Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly thickened, breaking up tomatoes with back of spoon, about 8 minutes. Mix in cilantro.
5 *To lower sodium, use no salt added tomatoes and add diced jalapeno, garlic and oregano.*
