This recipe is yet another Pinterest find. I really enjoyed its simplicity and how it used fresh, in season ingredients I was able to find at the local produce stand. Everyone really enjoyed it, and I particularly loved how easy it was to make.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 garlic cloves
1 cup fresh basil
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 package of cherry or grape tomatoes
1/2 large red onion, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 375F.
Season your chicken breasts with some salt and pepper. In a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, brown them and set aside.
In your blender or food processor (I used my mini-processor), place the garlic, basil, olive oil, vinegar and water. Pulse until it is smooth.
Place the cooked chicken in an oven-proof baking dish and cover with the basil mixture. Top it all off with the tomatoes and onions. Bake for 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
Serve over some brown rice, or pasta. I served it atop some garlic butter spaghetti with fresh herbs. Delicioso!
