I wanted to use up some of my fresh basil-so I created this recipe!
2 or 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (depending on size)
1-2T. Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
6-8 fresh basil leaves
sliced (or shredded)mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Sprinkle each side of chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook chicken in oil until both sides are browned (turn only once) About 3-4 minutes each side. Remove to baking dish. Set aside. Add onion and garlic to skillet. Cook until onion is almost translucent and add tomatoes. Stir until combined and spoon over chicken. Cover each breast with 2-3 basil leaves. Then layer mozzarella slices on top of basil and grate fresh Parmesan over top. Bake for 10-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Greta's rating: Eh. She wasn't crazy about this one. She ate all of the cheese and some of the chicken, but the tomatoes were a no go.
