Chicken with Fire Roasted Tomatoes

Sue Adame


We love Fire Roasted Tomatoes so what better way to use them but with chicken, some herbs, wine and cheese! It took a few times making it to get measurements for the recipe as I am one of those that throws it in and says "yes, that looks like the right amount!" ha-ha

This can be made with chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breast. Just adjust your cooking time.
