Preparation

  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook seasoned chicken breasts until chicken is browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Pour diced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar over chicken; season with basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tip

If tomatoes not in season, you can use canned San Marzano tomatoes.
