How to Make MOZZARELLA-BASIL CHICKEN WITH ROASTED TOMATOES

  3. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
  4. Cut remaining basil leaves into thin slices. Top tomatoes with basil and remaining dressing; toss lightly. Serve chicken topped with tomato mixture.
  5. NOTE: This is good served with hot cooked rice.
