Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 - 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 5 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 small zucchini sliced into coins
  • 1 small or 1/2 large onion sliced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Chicken Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Use paper towels to pat the chicken breasts dry. In a bowl, add all marinade ingredients and stir until mixed.
  • In a resealable bag or shallow dish, add chicken and marinade. Arrange the chicken breasts so they're coated with the marinade on all sides.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F while you prep the remaining ingredients.
  • Add tomatoes, zucchini, and onions to an oven-safe pot, briefly stirring to mix the ingredients.
  • Add marinated chicken in a single layer on top of the vegetables. Pour remaining marinade over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Bake at 400 F until the chicken is cooked through, about 45 minutes, depending on how thick your chicken breasts are.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken and vegetables to serving plates, leaving as much of the liquid as possible in the pot. Let the chicken rest and don't slice.
  • Place the pot over medium heat. Simmer until the liquid reduces in volume by half, a few minutes, stirring frequently. It should have a sauce-like consistency. Turn off the heat.
  • Pour the reduced sauce over the chicken. Scatter chopped parsley on top, and serve while warm.
