    TasteTester's Note:

    This dish is somewhat reminiscent of a Mediterranean chicken dinner I had at a restaurant once. Very delicious, easy to make, and enjoyed by our family.

      This recipe makes it into my best of 2010 recipes made so far, it was one of the tastiest and flavourful dishes I have made with chicken breasts, which can be a little bland! I made this exactly as posted and was rewarded with a rustic and yet multi-layered meal with amazing fresh flavours. The star of the show is the grated lemon peel which shines through and lightens the tomato sauce with a citrus zing! I ate this with your spinach salad recipe for a wonderful al fresco Sunday lunch on the terrace. Made for the Aus/NZ recipe swap and the Magic of Herbs event - thanks SO much for posting, a great recipe. FT:-) PS: I did offer grated parmesan at the table, to sprinkle over the top, that added a further flavour layer to to the recipe! (Photos to be posted.)
