Sunshine Chicken

Who can resist a perfectly ripe, sweet summer-fresh cherry tomato? Not anyone in our house. 🙂

This bright, savory dish brings all that is summer straight to your plate!



10-15 yellow cherry tomatoes
1 medium-sized heirloom tomato
1/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
2 sprigs fresh thyme, or 1 tsp. dried
1 tsp. dried or fresh chopped basil
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
4 oz. tomato sauce
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Halve the yellow cherry tomatoes and set aside in a small bowl. Roughly chop the heirloom tomato and place in bowl with cherry tomatoes. Add the basil, salt and thyme to the tomato mixture. Stir gently with a spoon.

Pour tomato sauce into a 8 x 8 in. baking dish or a round baking dish. Place chicken on top of tomato sauce. Drizzle olive oil on chicken, and top with the tomato mixture.

Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the dish and bake for 35-40 minutes.



Looks like sunshine, tastes like sunshine! Bundle loved every bite, so Mama is happy. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
