Chicken with Basil and Cherry Tomatoes

This can be baked in the oven in foil, in a pan with lid, or on the barbecue.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 5 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cups cherry tomatoes
  • To bake in the oven; In a large baking dish place your chicken breast, olive oil, tomatoes, garlic, parsley, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Add a drizzling of olive oil, salt and pepper (and about an egg cupful of white wine if you choose). Place in the oven at 400 degree or on the barbecue for about 30 minutes, (turning once, if on the barbecue) this is a great way to cook, as it keeps all the juices and flavors inside.
  • To cook in a pan, keep the heat low; add a little olive oil, the chicken breast and tomatoes, salt and pepper. Turn the chicken a couple of times, so it doesn't catch, add the basil leaves about halfway through, as you don't want them to be too 'soggy' and lose their flavor. Enjoy!
