Chicken With Fire Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

Larry found this one in his Men's Fitness magazine and I made it for supper tonight.  It was so easy and sooooooo good!!!


4 (4 oz.) trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup canned, drained, diced fire-roasted tomatoes or fire-roasted tomatoes with garlic
2 oz. (about 1/2 cup) goat cheese crumbles
2 tablespoons finely chopped basil or parsley, or more to taste (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Season chicken with salt and pepper.
Place ovenproof skillet over high heat. When it's hot, lightly mist with a bit of nonstick spray and immediately add the chicken. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.
Remove pan from heat and top each piece of chicken with about 2 tablespoons of tomatoes and 1/2 ounce of the cheese.
Transfer skillet to oven and bake 5 to 9 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in middle and cheese is melted. Top with basil then serve.

Yields 4 servings.
