  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Chicken Breast or Thighs Boneless, Skinless, Grade A
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Season both sides of chicken breasts with garlic salt and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook seasoned chicken breasts until chicken is browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Pour diced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar over chicken; season with basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
