  5. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the skillet along with the shallot and cook over moderate heat until softened. Add the tomatoes and cook, tossing, for about 2 minutes, until heated through.

  6. Add the vinegar and cook for about 30 seconds, until nearly evaporated. Add the stock, season with salt and pepper and simmer for about 2 minutes, until slightly reduced.

  7. Spoon the tomato sauce over the chicken, serve, and enjoy!
