  • 4 chicken breasts skin on
  • 80 ml olive oil
  • 80 ml balsamic vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and sliced
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 1 packet basil leaves torn roughly
  • salt & pepper
  1. Marinate the chicken in a shallow dish with the olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, pepper and salt
  2. Leave to marinate for about 30 minutes but if you can't then give it 5 minutes, the flavour will just be less intense
  3. To cook the chicken, place it on a a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Pour over the remaining marinade and throw over the cherry tomatoes - these will break down & make a sort of sauce 

  4. Cook for 20 minutes then check the meat as a small breast will cook in that time but an extra 5 minutes may be needed depending on your oven

  5. When it comes out of the oven tear up the basil and distribute it over the chicken and the cherry tomatoes
