I Can't Believe It's Not Fattening!
Chicken Breasts with Goat cheese and Fire-roasted Tomatoes
Hands-on Time: 7 MINUTES • Hands-off Time: 5 to 9 MINUTES
This dish is exceptionally easy to make and worth every second. That said, there is one thing to note: Be careful when checking the chicken for doneness. The tomatoes will likely drip into the chicken. If you cut into the chicken or poke it with a fork to test for doneness, be sure it’s not the liquid from the tomatoes making the chicken look pink even if it’s not.
4 (4-ounce) trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil spray
1/2 cup canned, drained, diced ﬁ re-roasted tomatoes or ﬁre-roasted tomatoes with garlic
2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) goat cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons ﬁnely slivered fresh basil leaves, or more to taste (optional
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Place a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet over high heat. When it’s hot, lightly mist the skillet with spray and immediately add the chicken side by side to the pan so it does not touch. Cook the chicken just until it is golden brown on the outsides, 1 to 2 minutes per) side.
Remove the pan from the heat and top each piece of chicken evenly with about 2 tablespoons of the tomatoes, followed by about 1/2 ounce of the cheese. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the chicken until it is no longer pink inside and the cheese is melted, 5 to 9 minutes. Top evenly with the basil, if desired. Serve immediately.
