EASY ITALIAN CHICKEN SKILLET
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 small white onion, peeled and diced
3 cloves garlic
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  Heat oil in large saucepan (skillet) over medium-high heat.  Add chicken breasts in a single layer, and cook 4-5 minutes on one side.  Then flip and cook on the second side for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink on the inside. Transfer chicken to a separate plate and set aside.
Add the onions to the pan with the remaining oil, and saute for 3 minutes or until mostly cooked. Add the garlic and tomatoes to the pan and saute 4-5 minutes, or until the tomatoes begin to break down. Add the roasted red peppers and half the fresh basil, and saute for an additional minute.  Then add the chicken breasts back to the pan, and sprinkle with the remaining basil.
Remove from heat and serve warm.
