Chicken Breast with Warm Tomato Salad

 

Chicken Breast w/Warm Tomato Salad - nutritious & delicious! | Fit, fun & delish!

I’m a little disappointed that the summer is upon us and we haven’t taken any trips yet this year. Usually by now, Mr. Delish and I try to take at least ONE trip to a fun place even if it’s for 4 to 5 days. We’ve been sooo busy that time has not allowed us that pleasure. I do have a short trip to Mexico next weekend to visit my family but that will only be for 3 days….. then we’re going camping at the end of June for 2 days. But those don’t really count.

Lately I’ve had so much work that when I need a mental break I just close my eyes and dream of being in a different place. One where there is a lot of greenery and has cool days. One where you can just take a stroll from place to place without feeling the pressure of time.

The next planned trip is to Boston in September with a side trip to Manhattan. That seems so far away, but hopefully we’ll be able to escape before then for at least a weekend to somewhere cool. Even if it’s nearby like California.

How about you? Please tell me your vacation plans! I want to live vicariously thru you:D

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 6 oz each
  • Kosher salt & pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, mined
  • 1½ cups cherry and pear tomatoes, a mix of colors is better, halved
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup packed fresh basil leaves, torn
Instructions
  1. Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic or wax paper on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of ½-inch.
  2. Season chicken thoroughly with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil per medium-high heat.
  4. Add the chicken and reduce the heat to medium.
  5. Cook, turning once, until nicely browned and opaque throughout, 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  6. Add the shallots and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3-4 minutes.
  7. Add the tomatoes and vinegar and cook, stirring often, until the tomatoes begin to soften and split, about 4 minutes.
  8. Add the basil, salt & pepper to taste and mix well.
  9. Serve warm.
