Chicken Pomodoro

Ask my husband how many ways you can cook chicken and he will just laugh.  However, this is one of his favorite dishes.  If you don't want to use the vodka that this recipe calls for, you can just use the chicken broth to help deglaze the pan. 

4 Chicken Breast
2 Tbsp. Oil
½ C. Vodka
¼ C. Heavy Cream
2 C. Chicken Broth
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
15 Oz. Diced Tomatoes

Cut each breast into 4 or 5 pieces. Pound lightly until ¼ inch thick. Dredge chicken in flour, seasoned with salt and pepper. Heat oil in skillet. In batches, sauté chicken until lightly browned. Transfer to platter. Deglaze pan with vodka. Add broth, tomatoes, cream and lemon juice. Return chicken to pan. Cook on low with lid on, for 30-40 minutes.
