Here’s an excellent chicken recipe for the whole family. Choose all-natural, whole ingredients to ensure you’re getting the most nutrition and best flavor! Dominique Fasano is a past US Wellness Featured Chef

“Roasted tomatoes and garlic, grilled chicken, and a pop of Provence flavor. A quick, easy, and delicious dinner!

For this recipe, I cooked the garlic a bit with red pepper flakes, then I add the cherry tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes, then the chicken and spices, and let everything cook until the flavors seep into each other.

The tomatoes here soften and crinkle beautifully, and the chicken grills nicely. It’s a savory flavorful dish which really cooks itself, and which brightens up crisp Fall nights.

I have a feeling I will be making this many many more times.” – Dominique Fasano

1 Tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 Tbs diced garlic
18 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half (I used 1/2 of a 1 quart container)
a scant 1/2 cup of julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes
1 lb chicken
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp herbes de provence
salt to taste
pepper to taste


  1. Add 1 Tbs olive oil and 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes to a frying pan and heat over medium-high heat, for about 1.5 – 2 minutes.
  2. Add the diced garlic to the oil, mix and cook for 2 minutes, mixing often making sure to not burn it.
  3. Reduce the stovetop heat to medium, and add the the sliced cherry tomatoes, a scant 1/2 cup of julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes (plus some extra oil from the sun-dried tomato container), and cook for 4 minutes, mixing every so often.
  4. Add the chicken to the pan, making sure each piece is touching the bottom of the pan. Top the chicken with 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp herbs de provence, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook the chicken for 4 minutes, then flip it. Cook for another 4 minutes and flip again.
  5. Increase the heat back up to medium-high, mix the tomatoes all around, and cook the chicken for 2-4 minutes and then flip it and cook for 2-4 minutes again.
  6. It is done when the tomatoes are cooked through and the chicken is cooked through to your liking.
