  • Ready In

  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with garlic salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook seasoned chicken breasts until chicken is browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Pour diced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar over chicken; season with basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Suggestion: Do not make this as stated if you are not a fan of the balsamic taste. All others, enjoy this delightful dish. I make this all of the time, and change it up by slicing the chicken ...

I can't believe how good this was! I omitted the oil and sauteed the onions and breasts in water and I used fresh rosemary and fresh basil. I served the chicken with risotto and poured the sau...

Excellent with artichoke hearts, tomato and mushrooms. A meal in itself.

Very good. I followed earlier advice and cubed the chicken and served over angel hair pasta. My husband hurried home the next day to eat the leftovers. (He NEVER eats leftovers!!!)
