Remember that Revealing Supper Party? Well that little royal girl was born this past Sunday morn, healthy, strong, and gorgeous Mackenzie. And with tomatoes still flying in each week from Leggett Farm Organics, and the fresh basil overtaking my garden, I made this delicious chicken entree for the new Mom and Dad Wednesday night. This one is a winner for certain!!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 8 fillets
1 Tbs olive oil
1/8 t Kosher salt
1/4 t fresh ground black pepper
1/2 Tbs dried oregano
1 lb cherry tomatoes, halved
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbs light butter
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

Drizzle olive oil in skillet on medium high.
Season both sides of chicken with salt, pepper and oregano.
Place into pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until almost cooked through.
Turn heat down to medium.
Add tomatoes and garlic.
Cook 4 minutes.
Add basil and butter, and stir until combined.
Turn heat off and let skillet stay on hot eye for 5 minutes.

Serves an army!
