"This takes almost no time to prepare, and you can even do the tomato/basil mixture the night before! It will be a hit."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Very good! I scaled this to two servings for Hubs and me. I made the tomato relish portion of this recipe, cutting the balsamic and olive oil in half. I made it in the afternoon and let it sit at room temperature until serving. And in order to save some calories, I just salted and peppered my chicken and seared it in a little olive oil, skipping the entire breading/frying process. My way was quick and easy and I would definitely do it that way again. Fresh basil and a good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar are key to this recipe. Here’s a tip: If you think your balsamic vinegar isn’t quite the quality it should be, you can add just a touch of brown sugar to it to give it more depth.
I agree with one of the other reviews--the chicken portion wasn't great, but the tomatoes/onion mix was wonderful! I warmed it up in a skillet for a few minutes so it was a bit tender. Next time, I'll probably make oven baked chicken and then top with the tomato mix.
This recipe is delicious! My husband said it tasted like a gourmet chef prepared it. He (obviously) loved it.
Because the other reviewers noted about the bland chicken, I added salt and pepper to the egg mixture and marinated the chiken for about an hour before covering them with the bread crumb. I also sauted the onion and let it cool before making the tomato basil mixture. It cuts down on the strong onion taste. Excellent and low carb meal.
Good sauce. Made night before then served over chicken breasts marinated in a lite Italian dressing. Ripe tomatoes, Vidalia onions and fresh basil are a good combo with grilled chicken. Served with a salad and garlic bread.
super basic, easy to make recipe. saves well for leftovers -- make extra tomato basil mixture for bruschetta the next day. were missing a few of the ingredients but easy enough to sub without any notice.
I used a few variations, but didn't like the chicken part of it. Loved the tomatoe and onion bit, but the onions got very strong after a little. Probably won't make it again. At least no the chicken
We liked the simplicity of this recipe, but did find it bland based on the original recipe. We added garlic powder and thyme to the breadcrumbs (we used panko crumbs). We also added garlic and rosemary seasoning blend to the tomato mixture along with coming half the diced onion with a bit of butter until cooked through, to cut down on the raw onion bite and let it marinate in the fridge. We also warmed the tomato mixture in a skillet before topping the finished chicken breasts. So good.
