Tomato Basil Chicken

Tomato Basil Chicken

Serves 4.

This was super easy, has a nice presentation, and is a healthy dish that has a semi-rich taste.  Serve over rice.  The blog linked below has a recipe for cashew rice pilaf that she serves with the dish, but I didn't take the time to make it.
Slightly adapted from: The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 T. Butter
1/2 c. finely chopped onion
1 can (14 oz.) Italian seasoned tomatoes (if not already cut up, coarsely chopped)
1/2 c. julienned FRESH basil leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat butter in skillet. Add onion and cook over medium heat until translucent, 5 min. Increase heat to high; add tomatoes and cook until liquid is almost evaporated, 5-10 min. Add cream and bring to boil; boil until slightly thickened, approx 3 min. Stir in basil, salt and pepper.

Arrange chicken in shallow baking dish; pour sauce on top.  Bake for 1 hour.
