Flip over the chicken and cook for another 10 minutes, just to be sure the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center
15
Remove chicken and place on a platter, tenting the chicken to keep it warm

In the nice pan juices, cook the tomatoes for about 5 minutes

Add the remaining herbed butter and continue to cook for about 1 more minute, crushing the tomatoes as you stir

About

As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……more mouth watering family dinners! While I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen, keeping the menu fresh and interesting can pose some challenges, particularly with everyone’s ever changing busy schedules and picky palettes. It’s only natural that chicken is a total go to; sear it, roast it, bake it, grill it, smother it with barbeque sauce, everybody’s happy.
I have made my new favorite Pan Seared Chicken with Grape Tomatoes several times and it’s always a winner. It’s simple and flavorful. What’s not to like?

More family dinners, more simple recipes, more easy chicken, more mouth watering goodness……
