Tomato Lemon Chicken Breasts with Sage

Tomato Lemon Chicken Breasts with Sage created by WeBees

I got this recipe from a borrowed cookbook (I can't remember the name of it) a few years ago. I've since adapted it a little bit, but not too much. It has become one of my tried-and-true recipes. I usually serve it with rice pilaf and a tossed salad, but once I served it with new potatoes and crusty rolls, and that was good too.

    WOW! This was great! I served this over Sage and Parmesan Rice (#203770) and used fresh sage from my herb garden. The taste was incredible - we just couldn't get enough! I will definitely make this again - Thanks so much for this now family favorite!

    This was good. The overwhelming flavor was lemon. I thought the flavor would be more complex...

    Really good, very easy. I overdid the sage a bit but this was a quick weeknight dinner for sure. We will be having this again. It was great with my fresh summer garden tomato's.

    I had chicken and sage in the fridge but no plan of action. I found this recipe at the last minute and I'm glad I did. The chicken and its sauce were excellent, this was first time I'd used fresh sage in a meat dish and I was pleasantly surprised; sage has a much different flavor when cooked than when raw. I only had one small carrot so I added parsnips too and that went great with the other ingredients. Next time I will only use parsnips but will add white wine as others have.
