Chicken with Basil & Tomatoes

Posted by: Hazel on 01/13/98 13:38:45 CST

8 chicken breasts or chicken pieces
olive oil
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, slivered
16 or so basil leaves, torn
1 onion, sliced thin
chopped tomatoes, canned or fresh

Pull the skin off of the chicken, but leave the chicken on the bone. Place in a large baking dish. Rub a little olive oil on it so the seasonings will stick. Salt and pepper it, freshly ground pepper is best. Sprinkle on the slivered garlic and lay on the basil leaves. Put the onion slices on top and then cover it all up with the tomatoes. Drizzle a little more olive oil over it. Cover with foil and bake it at 375 for a good 45 minutes, then remove foil and turn up the heat some and let the onions crisp up a little, and the liquid cook down. This goes really well with rice and green vegetables. I made this often when I got home late from work, it goes together quickly and you don't need to be hovering over the stove. Hope you like this one!
