Herb Chicken with Pan-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes 25


I am not ready to give up my garden yet, so I am wishing for a little more of the warm weather.  Since tomatoes are so yummy this time of year, I wanted to do herb chicken with cherry tomatoes. Not only is it yummy, but it makes a beautiful dish.  I served mine with a potato and carrot hash and a wedge salad, but I think it would pair beautifully with baked rice and roasted broccoli too.

Even my little ones and hubby will eat this one up.  The basil and garlic pair so nicely with the sweetness of the cherry tomatoes. I think basil is my new favorite herb.  It is so delicious.  My mint is taking over my herb garden, and I don’t have nearly enough mint recipes!! If you have a great mint recipe, send it my way.

Chicken is a staple at our house, and I love to find new ways to serve it.  This herb chicken really pops!
