how to cook chicken

There are several ways to prepare the chicken for the dish Chicken with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes. Start by seasoning your chicken with salt and pepper for all techniques.

Bake: Set oven temperature to 375 degrees. On a baking pan, spread some olive oil over the chicken. 165 degrees Fahrenheit or 20 minutes of baking is the recommended time. After 5 minutes of resting, plate the food and add toppings. The advantage of this method is that it requires little supervision and provides you time to prepare other dishes you are preparing.

On the stovetop, add some olive oil to a sizable nonstick pan and add the chicken. Depending on the thickness of the breasts, cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes per side. Cook the chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. This approach cooks the chicken a little quicker than the oven method, but if you don’t use a nonstick pan or enough oil, the chicken can cling. I prepared this recipe using this technique.

what type of tomatoes to use

I utilized Cherry tomatoes for this dish. Cherry tomatoes taste even better when roasted because they become sweeter. Grape tomatoes and other little tomato varieties are also acceptable. The preparation is the same regardless of variety. You should cut the tomato stem off and throw away those that have noticeable bruising.

storage tips

Fridge: Store Chicken and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes in a sealed container for up to 4 days in the fridge. To reheat either warm in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.

Raw Tomatoes: Store raw tomatoes at room temperature until use. If they come on the vine, leave on the vine until use as well. Raw tomatoes stored at colder temperatures can develop a mealy texture.

Fresh Basil: Store basil at room temperature for the best results. Basil stored in the fridge can darken and turn bad. To store on the countertop, trim the end of of the basil and place in a glass jar like you would for cut flowers. Place a plastic bag over the greens and basil will keep for several days.
