Jump to Recipe Juicy chicken, sweet smoky tomatoes and all made in the oven. This mediterranean inspired Roasted Tomato chicken dinner, is packed with flavour and so simple to prepare. The sun is setting and the bubbly is flowing, 4 friends sat outside, watching the sun sink lower in the sky, making the water glow pink and orange; so beautiful. As you sneak away to put the chicken in the oven you can hear the faint sound of the waves lapping against the rocks. A weekend by the lake, just what is needed after such a busy summer. Time to unwind, relax and enjoy the company of your 3 best friends.
I posted a sneak peek of it to my Instagram story last week and immediately received a flurry of messages requesting the recipe. You must adore fresh tomatoes and easy skillet meals as much as I do.

Garlic Butter Tomato Baked Chicken with Mozzarella
I figured it was high time I joined the rest of the World in the 21st Century, because apparently everyone and their mother well, at least my Mother and, even more embarrassing, my Grandfather are on Twitter.

But more like tomato pan gravy? It is the most delicious pan sauce slash an entire serving of veggies that would be beautiful if you were to say, mop it all up with a hunk of crusty bread? This tomato baked chicken recipe is the kind of meal I love cooking for the two of us. It starts with simple ingredients that I usually have on hand and takes very little prep work to whip up. You get a roasted tomato side, a spoon-slurp-worthy gravy, and of course tender chicken under a blanket of melty mozzarella cheese.
