Add onion, chopped basil, tomatoes, vinegar and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook and stir 30 to 45 seconds or until thoroughly heated.
- To serve, arrange chicken on individual plates. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Top each serving with mushroom mixture; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Garnish with basil sprigs.
- High Altitude (above 3500 feet):.
- Broil chicken 16 to 20 minutes.
- Ingredient Info:.
- Italian plum tomatoes, also called Roma tomatoes, are small oval fruits prized for their low moisture and high flavor. These characteristics make them perfect for canning, sauce and toppings; other tomatoes can make pizza and bruschetta soggy.
- Ingredient Substitutions:.
- To boost Italian flavor, use fresh garlic on the chicken breasts; mince 1 or 2 cloves and rub into poultry.
- Another Italian grating cheese can be used in place of the Parmesan; try Asiago or Romano.
Very nice flavor, i loved this! I left out vinegar and mushrooms per my taste, and added extra cheese. Loved the blend of light fresh tastes in this, it would work very nice for a summer company chicken dish. Thanks for posting!
Made this as a chicken dinner to take to a neighbor couple for whom I sometimes cook, & they were most appreciative, & with the leftovers, as well! As with many of these kinds of gifts/dinners, I also gave them a copy of the recipe! Just keepin' the neighbors happy, thanks to your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for the lazyme cook-a-thon]
