Ingredients

  • Four 5-ounce chicken breasts (weighed raw)

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

  • One 10-ounce container cherry tomatoes

  • 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. On the stovetop, heat a large, oven-safe skillet to medium heat.

  3. Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on each side.

  4. Spray pan with cooking spray, and add chicken. Brown for about 3 minutes until golden brown, and flip over to cook for 3 additional minutes.

  8. Sprinkle with chopped basil.
