When I tell you that this recipe is easy, you can take it to the bank. I even put the word “easy” in the title, because seriously – even a monkey (or your least favorite celebrity chef) could make this dish.
Necessary internet disclaimer: If you have a monkey and your monkey botches this recipe, I cannot be held responsible. It’s not my fault that your monkey is an idiot.
Please don’t let the lack of fancy ingredients or complicated instructions fool you – this is one of the tastiest ways to eat chicken that I know of.
Crispy, salty, juicy, and slightly sweet from the slow roasted tomatoes – there isn’t much more you could ask for from a dinner recipe.
Did I mention it was easy?
Here’s how it’s going to go down. Put your chicken and halved tomatoes in a baking dish. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Drizzle some olive oil over it. Throw on some fresh herbs (I used thyme), to add flavor and make it all fancy and stuff.
All that hard work should take about 2.3 minutes, and look like this:

Throw that business in the oven at 375 degrees (F) and then go help your kids with their homework, do some dishes, fold laundry, have a martini, make some Cheesy Cauliflower Puree, and when you come back an hour later it will look like this:

Plate, serve, and bask in the glory of a job well done. The end.

PS. If your monkey made this for you and did a good job, be sure to tell them – monkeys have feelings too. Also send pictures ASAP – and if said monkey could be wearing a tiny apron whilst making the recipe that would be PERFECT.
