Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into 4 cutlets, and arrange evenly in a baking dish.
  2. Combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Pour evenly over chicken breasts, using a spoon or spatula to spread it out.
  3. Place in oven and bake for about 35 - 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
