Chicken Parmesan with Herbed Tomatoes

Chicken Recipes

It's time once again for a delicious chicken recipe, chicken is a staple in many peoples diets and in my family it was a regular meal every Sunday as we would all sit down at the dinner table together to eat. As I have gotten older I decided to continue the tradition of weekly chicken meals but became flexible on the dates that I would eat it. This recipe is so tasty and the chicken moist that you will enjoy the distinct flavours added from the spices, the herbed tomatoes is a healthy touch and for those that want more of a filling, you can always add a bit of rice to your plate. The chicken and tomatoes can be cooked at the same time in the oven and if your baking sheet is big enough you can always cook them both together. I like to use large plum tomatoes, I find that they slice the best compared to other tomatoes and I enjoy their taste whether raw or baked but if you don't have any at home just about any large tomato will work fine. The brown sugar can also be substituted by white sugar if you do not enjoy the taste of molasses.
