Add oil to medium skillet or thick bottom saucepot over moderate heat. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides. Place chicken breast in the pan skin side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes caramelizing the skin. Turn chicken breast over and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside. Add onions, peppers, and garlic to pot and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, allowing the vegetables to sweat and the flavors to marry together. Add the tomatoes and water and stir and scrape the bottom of the pan releasing the good bits. Add the chicken to the pan. Take a spoon and make sure there is tomato sauce on top of the chicken and place pan in the oven. Cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165. Remove pan from the oven, check seasoning and add parsley.
You can remove the skin if you don’t want to eat it
