Italian Baked Chicken With Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

This one-pan dinner makes use of an easy, foolproof technique: baking chicken breasts with fresh vegetables. Here, the garlicky cherry tomatoes keep the meat moist and tender while also imparting tons of flavor. Plus, it's a total time-saver! To keep things strictly Paleo, omit the sprinkle of Parmesan cheese when serving.
