Ingredients

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts (around 9oz | 250g each breast)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • cracked black pepper, to taste

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic, (5-6 cloves garlic)

  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/4 red onion, peeled and sliced

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup fresh shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or basil, to garnish

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 220°C | 430°F.
  • Place chicken breasts in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Season with oregano, basil, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of minced garlic. Rub seasoning all over each breast. Arrange the tomatoes and red onion around the chicken in the dish.
  • Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, sugar and remaining garlic in a jug to combine. Pour over the chicken breasts, flip each breast in the sauce to evenly coat.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts), or until no longer pink in the middle. Sprinkle with cheese and broil (or grill) for 4-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden.
  • Garnish with parsley, and serve with rice or pasta drizzled with the pan juices.
