  • 3-4 chicken breasts about 2 lbs

Instructions

Recipe Notes:

This recipe is full of fresh flavors and simple to make.  Although I do not recommend freezing this before cooking, you can save time by prepping the tomato mixture the night before or buying pre-diced tomatoes which are available in many grocery stores in the refrigerated produce section.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.

Dietary Restrictions:
