We made this recipe over the weekend and it was absolutely fantastic. The chicken was so tender. The flavor was great. Even our kids loved it.

We did make it with Roma tomatoes cut up instead of cherry tomatoes.

I highly recommend this one.

Badger92,
Of course, you can substitute for the cherry tomatoes. I think the chopped tomatoes will certainly breakdown more and that will change the texture of the dish a bit, but it is still going to be very tasty.

I can't get cherry tomatoes where I live. How important are they to this dish? If I omit them or use regular chopped tomatoes, will it still be good?

I tried this recipe and served it with Jasmine rice and fresh spinach sauted in olive oil with shallots, toasted almond slices and garlic. It was wonderful.

How did I miss this yesterday?? I really enjoy the taste of balsamic vinegar in a recipe. Adding it with the cherry tomatoes will really make this dish yummy.
