Ingredients
  1. 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets (thinly sliced breasts)*
  2. 1 ½ tablespoons Organic Tuscan Herb EVOO
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. ½ teaspoon pepper
  5. 2 pints cherry tomatoes (we used a mixture of red, yellow, and orange)
  6. 1 ½ tablespoons Organic Tuscan Herb EVOO
  7. pinch of salt and pepper
  8. 1 teaspoon Organic Tuscan Herb EVOO
  9. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  10. 1 cup chicken stock
  11. ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  12. ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  13. 1/8 teaspoon fennel seed
  14. 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  15. 1 tablespoon Aged Fig Balsamic Vinegar
  16. salt and pepper, to taste
  17. shaved Parmesan cheese
  18. fresh basil
Instructions
  1. Place chicken breasts in a shallow pan or Ziploc bag. Drizzle with 1 ½ T. Tuscan Herb EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let chicken marinate for at least 1 hour (up to 1 day).
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick foil. Set aside. Combine cherry tomatoes, 1 ½ T. Tuscan Herb EVOO, and salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread evenly on prepared baking sheet. Roast tomatoes in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until tomatoes blister and burst (tossing at least once). Remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from marinade. Preheat large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside (chicken will not be fully cooked). Add 1 t. Tuscan Herb EVOO and minced garlic to hot pan. Sauté garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add roasted tomatoes, chicken stock, basil, oregano, fennel, red pepper flakes, and Aged Fig Balsamic Vinegar. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Bring mixture to a boil (smashing tomatoes as you stir). Reduce heat and place chicken breasts in the tomato sauce. Cover and cook until chicken reaches 165 degrees (about 10 minutes).
To Serve
  1. Place chicken breast on plate. Spoon rustic tomato sauce on top and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Enjoy!
