The tomatoes help keep the chicken moist and juicy, the basil packs a flavorful punch, and the cheese is gooey and wonderful. A healthy salad or some garlic bread alongside would be great but since I have a jillion boxes of half-used pasta cluttering my pantry, I boiled some rotini for my pasta-loving daughter. Spaghetti, angel hair, ziti, or your favorite pasta would work just as well. Soon there will be an abundance of tomatoes and basil growing in gardens and at the markets and this recipe is a perfect way to use them. Total Time: about 20 minutes. Tomato, basil, and mozzarella just go together.

Balsamic Baked Chicken Breast With Mozzarella Cheese
Easy and quick but hearty, this chicken mozzarella and tomato bake will become a firm family favourite. Sun-blushed or sun-soaked tomatoes — only partially dried and usually preserved in oil — have a delicious, concentrated flavour. You can find them in the supermarket in a jar or in a pack in the chiller cabinets. You will need a wide-based, shallow ovenproof dish that is large enough to hold all four chicken breasts. Mix the passata with the Worcestershire sauce, season with salt and pepper and pour into the base of the dish.
