  • Grape tomatoes; sliced in half
  • Fresh Basil leaves

  • Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick baking spray.
  • Brush each chicken breast with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 160 degrees.
