Ingredients
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1.5 lb. fresh tomatoes, cubed into large cubes
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped (8 oz)
  • ½ cup (packed) chopped basil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 4 (8 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup (4 oz) shredded part-skim Mozzarella
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9 X 13-inch baking dish with olive oil spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the tomatoes, onion, garlic, the basil (reserving 2 tablespoons for topping), 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  3. Brush the chicken breasts on both sides with the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon kosher salt, black pepper and the oregano. Nestle, flat side up, among the tomatoes.
  4. Bake 15 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces, and bake 15 more minutes.
  5. Switch oven to broil, set on high. Leave the oven rack in the center of the oven. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with the cheese. Broil 2-3 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Sprinkle with the remaining basil and serve.
