It turned out great! It was very easy and simple to make. Two tips: 1.) if your chicken breast are really big, slice them so it cooks faster. 2.) Make sure you have a big enough pan to spread out all the ingredients evenly. If it's cramped,it will take longer to cook due to all the juices from the tomatoes and chicken.

Definitely broiled the mozzarella for too long, but it still turned out great! VERY garlicy, which I'm a big fan of, but if you're not a big garlic person, might want to cut back.

I loved it, I probably should have let the chicken marinate a little longer, I only marinated them about 10 minutes because I was pressed on time. Will definitely make it again and marinate longer!

Used this recipe to make dinner for one.. trimmed the ingredients but it was the most delicious tomato chicken recipe I have found! I used pre shredded mozza (all I had..) and I see what you mean about it being too melted! I paired with Jasmine rice and used the sauce in place of soya sauce ;)

Very easy and a great way to use the cherry tomatoes that won’t stop from my tomato plant this year!

I made it without the red pepper flakes, white wine vinegar, and parsley/ theme. It was very moist and delicious. We will be making it again.

I really loved this recipe. I made it without making any changes I agree with the creator of this that slicing real mozzarella makes a difference. It was like a caprese.. I didn’t melt it down. Oh, one thing i did leave out melted butter.

Turned out great. I used a sous vide to cook the chicken then added it to a pan with the tomatoes and cheese and broiled in the oven for 10 minutes
