  • 1-2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast butterflied or pounded thin
  • ½ cup flour
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic about 6 cloves
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved lengthwise
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a heavy pan (cast iron works great).
  • Sprinkle chicken with garlic powder and salt, then dredge in flour and shake off excess.
  • Add chicken to pan and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side depending on thickness. Remove from pan.
  • Add garlic to pan and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant (but don’t let it burn!).
  • Add tomatoes and cook until softened and slightly charred.
  • Pour in balsamic vinegar, lower heat and cook until reduced and slightly sticky (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add butter and italian seasoning to pan and stir until melted and mixed through.
  • Put chicken back into pan to warm.


Serve with mashed potatoes or pasta. The tomatoes are also fantastic on slices of toasted baguette.
