I shop at my farmer's market as often as possible to buy fruits and vegetables. It's the perfect season to eat fresh tomatoes in appetizer, in salad or cooked.

I love cherry tomatoes cooked with garlic.

Yesterday, I made Chicken breast with mozzarella, basil and cherry tomatoes. It's the easiest chicken's recipe that I've made. It's a quick and delicious recipe

My whole family enjoyed this meal :) 

La Fourmi Elé a French cooking blog inspired me for this recipe.

Simply make sure that the chicken is cooked. You can serve it with pasta, potatoes or green beans.

Ingredients   

  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 250 gr (8.80 oz) (0.550 lb) ball mozzarella, sliced into 8
  • 20 gr chopped fresh basil
  • 3 + 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 250 gr (1/2 pint) cherry tomatoes (around 15 round cherry tomatoes)
  • 2 small garlic cloves crushed and chopped
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. Add the chicken and cook over-medium heat around 30-40 mn.
  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  3. In a small pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the garlic and fry 1 minutes. Then add the tomatoes and the basil. Let it cook 10 minutes (add salt and pepper after 5 minutes of cooking).
  4. When the chicken is cooked. Add the mozzarella on the top of the chicken, then the tomatoes. Serve when the mozzarella has melted.

Bon Appétit!
