This recipe is actually my third attempt at this dish. I originally tried to do it with just spices. Then I added lemon juice on the second round, but didn’t care for the plain flavor. On the third try, I changed a few spices and used balsamic vinegar instead, and it turned out really delicious!

This dish is easy to prep ahead of time. Perfect for weekend prep too!! If you buy the chicken raw, you could easily prep this and freeze a portion. So it’s great for those of you cooking for just yourselves too. This is a great recipe for stocking up in the freezer!

I paired this with a salad to keep things simple. But you could easily make some brown rice and more cooked veggies to complete the meal. Simple, tasty and versatile.

  1. I love the simplicity of this dish, only vinegar and spices. I really appreciate that you use dried spices instead of fresh, too. That makes this easy to make on a night when I don’t have much on hand. I also like the pairing of the roasted tomatoes with the chicken.

    Yum! I’m a huge fan of balsamic vinegar!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      AZ – Wonderful! I hope you enjoy the chicken! 🙂

  3. I assume you cut the tomatoes in half and face upward? Or do you place them in there whole? Sounds delicious

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rachel – Yep, sorry about that. Cut them in half and face upward. 🙂

  4. Should I cook then freeze, or do I freeze before I cook it? (Cooking newbie here ????)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kay – You could go either way really. The only difference being that you wouldn’t want to freeze the raw tomatoes. So if you freeze first, just do the chicken and toss the tomatoes in when you thaw and cook. Enjoy! 🙂

  5. Should this dish be covered when cooking?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Barb – I didn’t, but you can if you prefer.
