I  love rosemary! Like it is legit y’all!  That is the strongest declaration that I can make about a herb. When I was planning dinner: I knew that rosemary was going to be the star of the dish. I decided to make one of my favorite fall chicken dishes: Skillet roasted rosemary tomato chicken.

Pan-Roasted rosemary Chicken and tomatoes

Wait a minute… Can I just take a minute to talk about how juicy these tomatoes are?     I might be completely partial to tomatoes because during the summer I collected over 5lbs of tomatoes from our trees.

It is currently 86 degrees in Florida. Yup, it is still THAT hot and humid here. WHHHHHATTTT??!!?? I thought I read somewhere it was fall. However, I like to pretend that it’s about 20 degrees cooler. Which would mean, that I could finally put on my knit sweaters without burning up. So I decided to bypass the temperature outside: I turned my Air Conditioner on high. So now it is the perfect sweater weather temperature in my house. I’ll deal with my electric bill later.ould

Rosemary Chicken and Tomatoes

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 22 mins
Total Time 37 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 sprig rosemary
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb mixed combination of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup broth

Instructions

  • Brine: To make your boneless skinless chicken breasts even juicier and more flavorful use a quick brine. Just with a 15 minutes simple brine the chicken breast will be juicier.
  • Heat the cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the olive oil.
  • Reduce heat to medium and place chicken breast in pan and cook for 1 minute without moving.
  • Wait until it is golden brown and then flip the chicken breasts. Cook for an additional minute.
  • Then remove chicken and set aside. Drain off oil. Add butter and add onion along with garlic sauté for 1 minute. Add chicken, broth and rosemary. Turn the heat to low.
  • Add tomatoes, cover the skillet and cook on low for 10 minutes. Cover with a tight-fitting lid. Do not lift the lid; do not even think of peeking.
  • After 10 minutes additional, turn off the heat. Let chicken rest for 10 more minutes. Again, do not lift the lid; do not peek I mean it.
  • Take breast out and serve with rice, quinoa or grab a crust bread and dig in!

    10 minutes on medium heat does not cook a chicken breast. Try cooking 4 to 6 minutes a side and then do 20 minutes on low heat and 5-10 minutes off the heat. I’ve never cooked a chicken breast in under 25 minutes- maybe a chicken thigh.

    1. JD, there is 20 minutes cook time. 10 minutes without the tomatoes and an additional 10 minutes with the tomatoes. And I also recommend allow the chicken to rest. 🙂
