Cherry tomatoes, which pack a healthful punch, are often seen as a garnish and left behind on the plate. Here, as a sauté atop lean chicken breasts, they make a nutritious, one-dish weeknight supper.

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, each about 6 oz.
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups cherry and pear tomatoes, preferably a mix of colors
      and shapes, stemmed and halved
  • 1/2 cup slivered fresh basil

Directions:

One at a time, place the chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and lightly pound with a meat pounder to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Season the chicken generously on both sides with salt and pepper.

In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Working in batches, add the chicken and reduce the heat to medium. Cook, turning once, until nicely browned and opaque throughout, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer each piece to a plate as it is finished and cover with aluminum foil.

Add the shallots and garlic to the pot and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, until they begin to soften and split, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the pot and toss with the tomatoes. Sprinkle with the basil and serve immediately. Serves 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, easy and delicious! This dish goes together quickly and is very light and refreshing with the fresh basil. After adding the chicken to the sauteed onion/garlic mixture, the combination makes a nice sauce that adheres to the chicken. The entire family enjoyed it and will definitely be making it for gatherings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but a little bland I would recommend maybe adding some cheese or another vegetable to compliment the tomatoes, as this recipe is a little bland. I will make it again and serve it with an arugula salad. Its good for a quick dinner or an easy dinner party. It really is as pretty as the advertised picture.
