  • 4 4-ounce)  boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil spray (I prefer to use my Misto)
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp italian seasoning
  • 2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) goat cheese crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil leaves

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix together the tomatoes, garlic, and italian seasoning in a small bowl.

3. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place a skillet over med-high heat. Once the pan is heated, spray with olive oil spray.  Add the chicken to the pan and cook 1-2 mins on each side.

4. Remove the pan from the heat and add 2 TBSP of the tomatoes and 1/2 oz of the cheese to each chicken breast. Transfer the pan and finish cooking the chicken in the oven for about 8-10 minutes until chicken is no longer pink and cheese is melted. Top each chicken breast evenly with the basil.
