Tender chicken breasts cooked in a silky fresh tomato basil sauce, makes for one seriously delicious and healthy  dinner recipe. It’s incredibly easy to prepare and is a dish the whole family will love.


    • 1 1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 6 fillets
    • 2 tbsp light butter (I used Brummel & Brown)
    • 1 lb cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
    • 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
    • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Spray a medium sized non-stick skillet with non-fat cooking spray or an olive oil mister and set over medium high heat.
  2. Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt, pepper and oregano. Place into pan and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until chicken is almost entirely cooked through.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium and then add in the tomatoes and garlic. Cook for about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add in basil and butter, and stir until combined. Season with additional salt and pepper as desired. Turn heat to low and let sit for about 5 more minutes.
