Van Gogh Chicken with Chives
Amsterdam, Holland

Makes 8 servings

  3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  4 cloves garlic, crushed
  8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
  2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  1 pound mushrooms, washed and roughly chopped
  3 large tomatoes, roughly chopped, with seeds and juices reserved
  1 cup dry white wine
  2/3 cup heavy cream
  6 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, or more to taste
  Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 1. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot. Add
 the onion and garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the chicken and rosemary
 and stir-fry until the chicken is browned on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes.
 Remove the chicken pieces with tongs or a slotted spoon and set aside.

 2. Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, and wine to the onion and cook until
 slightly tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the cream and 4 tablespoons of
 the chives. Return the chicken and any juices that have collected to the
 pan and bring the mixture almost to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and
 simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked
 through, 8 to 12 minutes.

 3. Check the seasonings, adding salt and pepper, as necessary. Serve hot,
 sprinkled with the remaining 2 tablespoons of chives.
