How To Make Cherry Tomato Pasta With Seared Chicken

Step 1: Prep Ingredients And Sear Chicken

To begin, mince garlic cloves and set aside for later. Mix salt, pepper, and oregano in a small bowl. S

Then, slice chicken breasts in half horizontally and season on all sides with the mixture. Heat 1.5 tsp of oil in skillet over medium heat.

When the oil is hot add the chicken to the pan. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side.

Remove chicken from the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low.

Step 2: Boil Water For Pasta And Blister Tomatoes

At this point, add your pot of water to the stove to boil the water for the pasta. Then, add the tomatoes to the skillet to blister. Increase the heat to medium.

You want to hear the tomatoes sizzle, but not burn. If they start to burn, reduce the heat. Allow the tomatoes to blister for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Sauté Cherry Tomato Sauce

Then, reduce the heat to medium low and add your diced garlic to the pan with the tomatoes. Saute for about a minute until the garlic is fragrant. Add the balsamic vinegar to the pan and saute for another minute.

Next, drop your noodles in the boiling water and stir. Allow the tomatoes to cook and simmer over medium heat as the noodles cook. You can push down on the tomatoes with the back of a fork to encourage them to burst. 

Step 4: Slice Chicken, Toss Pasta In Sauce

Next, while the tomatoes and pasta cook, slice the chicken into strips. After 8 minutes take ⅓ cup pasta water from the pasta pot and pour it into the pan with the tomatoes. 

Then, add sliced chicken to the pan with the tomato sauce. Drain the pasta and add to the pan with the sauce and remove from the heat.

Toss with tongs so that everything is thoroughly mixed. Finally, top with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.

How to Make Creamy Tuscan Chicken with Cherry Tomatoes

I love a good dish that comes together fast, and only uses one pan. Hooray for less clean-up!

Cook the Chicken Breasts

For this dish, you brown your seasoned chicken breasts in a little olive oil in a large pan. You want to continue cooking them until they are no longer pink in the middle, and golden on the outside.

Add the Veggies

In the same skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the garlic and cook for just about a minute. Then add the cherry tomatoes, and little more salt and pepper. When the tomatoes start to burst, it’s time to add in a few handfuls of spinach. Continue cooking until it wilts.

Isn’t it pretty?

Make the Sauce

Stir in the heavy cream and Parmesan cheese, and bring it all to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, and continue cooking until the sauce begins to thicken and reduce.

Add the chicken back into the pan, and cook for about 6 or 7 minutes more until the chicken is warmed through.

✔️easy to make
✔️with simple ingredients
✔️& is ready in about 30 minutes with very little hands on prep time

Let’s get to it!

How To Make This Italian Chicken With Tomatoes & Olives

Altogether this one pan dinner is incredibly easy to make with only 10 ingredients, prepped in one bowl and cooked all inside of one pan.

Once you’ve set your oven to preheat, add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl: chicken, herbs, aromatics, veg an all. Add everything to a bowl and simply mix it all together.

Use a pair of cooking tongs if you have any available so that you can move your chicken around making sure to coat well in herbs and spices.

Once everything has fully mixed together, remove the chicken from the bowl and transfer to a prepared baking sheet. Lay out the chicken leaving a little bit of space in between each piece and bake for about 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes remove the pan from the oven and add the remaining contents of your mixing bowl to the pan: tomatoes, olives, garlic and oil. Spread of the veg around the chicken and return to the oven to bake once more for a final 10 or so minutes.

When the chicken has reached an internal temp of 165°F you’re good to go. Take out the chicken a final time and season with additional pepper and herbs for good measure. Fresh basil and/or parsley make good additions to this chicken but you can also just stick to the dried herbs if that’s easiest.

What to serve with this chicken?

  • Keep it keto
    • As it is this Italian chicken is a great, low carb and paleo friendly recipe. If you’d like to keep it that way you can serve this over top a bowl of creamy mashed cauliflower or fresh zucchini noodles.
    • Slice up the chicken breasts and toss it into salads – tomatoes, olives and all.
  • If you’re not as concerned about keeping things low carb you can slice up the chicken and mix this into cooked pasta. This would go well in a gluten free penne or spaghetti.
  • Add to sandwiches and wraps. I made a panini out of our leftovers using some sun dried tomato pesto leftover from another recipe.

Can I use chicken thighs instead of breast?

  • Sure thing! Do everything the same except cook the chicken thighs on their own longer. Increase the initial chicken bake time from 15 minutes to 25 minutes. I also recommend turning the oven up to broil for 2-3 minutes at the end to crisp up the skin.

How long does this recipe keep?

  • Once completely cooled, store leftovers in an airtight container for up to four days in the fridge.
