Delicious, easy baked chicken recipe! Prep ahead of time for busy weeknight meals.


  • 2 cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup snipped, fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 lb boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese


  1. Combine diced tomatoes, diced red onion, basil, balsamic vinegar and salt in a bowl. Place chicken breasts in a 13x9 baking dish. Pour tomato mixture over top.
  2. Cover dish with foil. You can either refrigerate and bake later (within 12 hours) or bake immediately. Bake in a 350 degree oven, covered, for about 40-45 minutes (until chicken is completely cooked, 165 degree with meat thermometer).
  3. Remove foil and top with mozzeralla cheese. I used sliced cheese, but shredded would work well too. Place dish back in oven on top rack. Bake 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  4. Serve immediately with a fresh salad or angel hair pasta. ENJOY.
