This recipe was an instant family hit and is now a favourite.
In the last 20 minutes I top it with diced tomatoes, fresh basil and feta cheese.
The only other thing I would strongly recomend is to brown the chicken beforehand so that it doesn't look so pale on the plate.
Chicken with Garlic, Basil & Parsley Haiku: "Kind of a 'meh' dish. Odd, because it smelled SO good. Needs more ... I dunno." I followed the recipe exactly (mincing garlic instead of slicing) and while the chicken was extra-juicy and tender, the flavor just didn't do it for me, or well, the lack of more flavor. Yes, it's super-easy, and definitely a healthy dish (maybe I should've taken all the reviewers' suggestion of topping w/ mozzarella, thereby decreasing the healthy factor?), but wow, chicken that isn't browned 1st just looks so pale and wiggly on a plate. If I made this recipe again, I would definitely brown the chicken first and maybe mix fresh herbs instead of dried w/ olive oil and brush it on while it bakes. Still, for the ease of preparation, it wasn't terrible, just sorta "yawn."
Very very easy and good! I drizzled a little bit of balsamic vinegar on top before baking then added some mozzarella during the last 15 minutes of baking. Turned out very juicy.
We loved this flavorful and healthy dish. I used fresh basil, but got lazy and used dried minced garlic. It was very moist and tender. Unlike others, we had no desire to add the extra calories and fat of a cheese topping. Next time, I might sprinkle a little extra salt, basil, and parsley on top of the tomato slices. This is definitely going to be a regular at our house!
This recipe is SOO good! I put a ton of minced garlic and covered the chicken with as many slices of romano tomatos as I could (love em!) and left out the red pepper flakes ...I placed it on wild rice and topped with shredded parmasan cheese and it was AMAZING! My husband couldn't believe how clean the kitchen was when I was done! Very easy, very good ...we were very impressed!
This recipe was so quick and easy and delicious! I made a few slight changes. I marinated the chicken in the seasonings along with a couple tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and 1/2 c of chicken boullion - then baked as noted. One last change - as also suggested - I topped tomatos with thinly sliced mozzarella cheese. Just heavenly!
very good I put everything together about three hours before cooking to get a stronger flavor. It turned out fabulous...
This is very tasty, but nothing fancy. I used 1 lb of boneless chicken tenders figuring that was a good estimate for 4 breasts. I did use jarred, minced garlic instead of fresh - I spread about 1/4-1/2 tsp on each breast. Instead of fresh tomatoes, I used half a can of diced tomatoes with most of the juice drained. Otherwise I made the recipe as stated with spice amounts and cooking method. Make sure to not overcook the chicken after you uncover it, otherwise it will be too dry. Ours turned out moist and yummy! My poor daughter did get a bite with a bunch of red pepper - oops! My husband and I loved the spice, though. The liberal seasoning is the key to this recipe to keep it from being bland. Next time I make this, I may marinate the chicken in a little Italian dressing first. Definitely a keeper!
