  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon dark balsamic vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts 6 to 8 ounces each
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1/4 cup basil fresh, roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Set aside 1/4 of the olive oil mixture for the tomatoes.
  • Place the chicken in a bowl and drizzle about 3/4 of the olive oil mixture over top. Mix to coat the chicken in the oil and vinegar mixture.
  • Place the chicken onto an un-greased baking sheet. If there is any oil mixture left in the chicken bowl, drizzle over top.
  • Combine the remaining oil mixture with the grape tomatoes in a clean bowl. Spread on to the baking sheet around the chicken.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through. Sprinkle the fresh basil over top and serve.
