This was a really delicious, quick weeknight meal. This is not really a special occasion meal, but definitely 4 stars in taste and ease of preparation with on hand ingredients and good nutrition stats. The carmelized tomatoes were especially tasty. Served with the Mushroom-Zucchini Orzo, also good. This is a really good go-to meal for busy nights.

I just made this for dinner and loved it. My husband is not a fan of tomatoes, so he ate just the chicken and he liked it a lot. I poured 1 tsp. of balsamic vinegar straight over my chicken once it was done cooking and then topped it with the tomatoes and sauce right into the sauce pan. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the simpleness blows me away with how good it was!

Made this last nite, would not make again. Used fresh tomatoes from my garden, would rather have eaten them raw. I do not recommend this recipe. Disliked the flavor of the tomatoes cooked with honey.

This is such a simple dish but the flavor blows me away! Next time I think I'm going to double or maybe even triple the amount of the tomato/honey/olive oil mixture so that I could toss it with some pasta to serve with the chicken. Not too sweet with the honey, my boyfriend and I loved it. I don't see why you couldn't serve this for a special occasion, it may be too simple to wow people but the flavor is worth it! AND its healthy, what more could you ask for? I served it with a side of pasta because I tried to cook some rice (it was my first time trying to make rice) and I couldn't get it to cook in time. To make the tomato part easier, I lined a baking dish with aluminum foil and instead of leaving it flat I folded up the sides to make a box. Then I drizzled the olive oil and honey over the tomatoes, mixed it up halfway through (about 6 mins). That way, I just kind of made a funnel out of the foil and poured all the juices into a bowl and... no cleanup for the pan!

This was a good recipe but I had to tweak it a bit the second time I made it. I marinaded the chicken in a little balsamic vinegar and fresh chopped oregano before cooking. It needed something to balance the sweetness in the tomato mixture so I also added a little feta cheese on top before serving and it was delicious.

This is exactly how they describe 3 stars.. a "good, solid recipe". Super quick and cheap and tasty!

I added a little bit of fresh rosemary and garlic on top of the tomatoes and let the chicken marinate for about an hour in a balsamic dressing (also added rosemary to this). Both of these tweaks worked to the dish's advantage! The tomatoes were so scrumptious, and they perfectly balanced the tartness of the balsamic marinated chicken. This was an amazing recipe-- especially for the amount of effort it took to manifest.

I just tried this last night and thought it was really good although I adjusted a little... I marinated the chicken in balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing and some dried oregano for about an hour in the fridge. I took bits and pieces from some of the other reviews, like using a aluminum foil bowl on a baking sheet for the tomatoes... That worked nicely! Also, I cooked the chicken in a bit of olive oil and some juice from one of those jars of minced garlic... Fair warning the mixture of these oils pops a bit in the pan and can burn easily. When I added the tomatoes to the pan, the mixture of the sauce an the pan drippings made a delicious sauce.

Was just ok. No particular reason why it wasn't good, just didn't feel like it was good enough to try again. I liked the roasted tomatoes and may pair that part with another recipe.
