Herb-Roasted Chicken and Tomatoes
Oh my gosh! This dinner was soooo good. I am part of this online thing called nomoretogo.com and this was one of her recipes. I tweaked it a little to meet my personal needs and it came out delicious! So flavorful, juicy, and super easy to make. 

What you need:

  •  10oz grape or cherry tomatoes (I bought one of those plastic cartons)
  • 1 shallot, finely sliced
  • 3 TBS olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon rubbed sage   
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 TBS white wine vinegar 

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 
  2.  Combine cut each of the cherry or grape tomatoes in half. 
  3. In a small bowl, combine the tomato halves, shallot, 1 TBS of the olive oil, and herbs and stir until combined. 
  4. In a skillet, heat the rest of the olive oil over medium heat. Salt and pepper the chicken and brown in the heated skillet for 5 minutes per side. 
  5. Add the herbed tomato mixture and saute for 3 minutes. Transfer the contents into a baking dish and then into the oven. 
  6. Roast for 10-15 minutes until the chicken juices are clear. 
  7. Remove chicken and tent with foil to keep warm. Put the tomatoes back in the oven for a minute or 2 watch them carefully. 
  8. Remove tomatoes from the oven and add them and the worcestershire and  white wine vinegar back to the skillet on the stove. Simmer for about 2 minutes and serve with the chicken.
