Ingredients

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts trimmed of fat
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1- pint grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup basil and tomato flavored feta
  • 1/4 cup basil

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness.
  • Preheat a skillet to medium-high.
  • Salt and pepper both sides of chicken breasts. Add 2 tbsp oil to the pan.
  • When the oil is hot swirl it around to cover entire pan. Turn heat to medium. Place chicken in pan and cook for about 5 or 6 minutes per side. Try not to disturb them so they have time to brown on each side.
  • The chicken should no longer be pink in the middle and reach a temperature of 165°.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and cover with foil.
  • Add 1 tbsp more olive oil and add tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes until they start to burst open. Add 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar. Scrape the bottom of the pan and get up all that goodness.
  • Add chicken back to pan with the juices.
  • Top with feta and basil and serve.
