Fresh Tomato Chicken

"This is a really quick quick dish. It does benefit from a long marinade but can cope without it. I like the pantry aspect of it, in that I almost always have all of the ingredients required."

  • Arrange chicken in an ovenproof dish.
  • They should not overlap.
  • In a bowl combine everything else but the cheese.
  • Mix well.
  • Cover the chicken with the mixture.
  • Cover with foil.
  • Leave this until you want it, it works well if you do it in the morning but it is not necessary.
  • Bake at 180C for 45 minutes.
  • Remove foil.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 15 minutes.
  • The cheese does not need to brown unless you really want it to, I like it just oozy.
  • Serve one breast per person on rice or pasta or couscous.
  • Even mashed potato could be nice although I've never tried it.

  1. Very, very good, I cut the recipe down for 2 prople, Also used a can of stewed tomatoes and add a little of the spices especially cumim and bay leaf, as the stewed tomatoes has a lot of the spices already in them. I used monterey Jack cheese this was very good.
  2. Two out of three of us enjoyed this (but the third is a bit picky anyway). I used thighs and legs, stacked them in a narrow but deep plastic container with a lid, poured the veggie/spice mixture over, covered and stuck it in the fridge at dinner time on Tuesday and baked it Wednesday night. I was really surprised that it really didn't need any additional salt - I'm a salt addict. We'll definitely be making this again when our picky third party has other plans. :)
  3. This was good! I had to use garlic powder and left out the onion since I apparently need to hit the grocery store again. Very nice with mashed potatoes. Thanks!
  4. I need to remember that my oven is in F not C
  5. I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the millions of tomatoes I have from my garden and this one was a 5 Star Find!! You can't ask for an easier recipe! The flavor was great! I sided it with Parmesan Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Recipe #3721 ) and it was wonderful together! I didn't let it marinate this time- next time I will and I'll try it on thin spaghetti and topped with mozzarella cheese - it should be great. By the way, I just made this yesterday and my PICKY fiance wanted me to make it again tonight (that says a lot)!
