Garnish:

Instructions

  • Spray a baking sheet pan with non- stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Add the remaining grape tomatoes to pan and cook for about 25 minutes, depending on thickness of your chicken breast.
  • When chicken is done (no longer pink inside) remove from oven. 

Garnish:

  • Drizzle reduced balsamic vinegar over everything. Garnish with fresh basil leaves. (this recipe tastes best if you eat the fresh basil with the chicken- I highly recommend this!)
    Serve hot.
