Chicken Fra Diavolo is a vibrant and spicy Italian dish that combines tender chicken with a fiery tomato-based sauce. This dish is known for its bold flavors, thanks to the addition of chili peppers and a variety of herbs. It’s a fantastic meal for anyone who loves a little heat in their food and is perfect for an adventurous dinner experience.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (400g) crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish
  • Optional: cooked pasta for serving


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and chili flakes, cooking for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the white wine and let it simmer for a couple of minutes, scraping up any browned bits from the chicken.
  4. Add the crushed tomatoes, oregano, and basil. Bring the sauce to a simmer.
  5. Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the chicken. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
  7. Serve over cooked pasta if desired.
