One Pan Chicken Breasts With Tomatoes

Gardening is a wonderful activity for the summer, particularly when you set aside some space for a kitchen garden.  It takes us back in time when families grew their own food and grand country houses like Downton Abbey grew enough produce to feed the family and servants.
 The challenge can be how to make use of your vegetables as they come fresh off the field. 
As a child,  I  lived on tomato sandwichs in late summer as loads of fresh tomatoes came off our family garden.  I would help my mom can whole tomatoes, tomato sauce and a sweet chili sauce for the winter, but be sure to enjoy fresh tomatoes from your garden or your local farmers. Try this easy recipe for a quick dinner.
