Tips For Making The Best Creamy Garlic Tomato Chicken:

  • Do you have to use chicken thighs?  No, you can use chicken breast just make sure to cook them on a little lower heat so you don’t over cook the outside and under cook the inside.
  • Make sure to cook the fresh tomatoes until they begin to wilt, it gives them a softer texture almost like butter.
  • Can you use any kind of tomatoes?  Yes.  If you use roma tomatoes make sure to dice them into small pieces so they cook down.  I like the small cherry tomatoes because they are a little sweeter.
  • Creamy Garlic Tomato Chicken is wonderful served over rice or along side a green salad or vegetable.
  • You can use marinara sauce in place of the tomato sauce if you have a favorite.
  • This is perfect over rice, pasta, or along side a fresh green salad.
  • Make sure to just slice the tomatoes in half, you want them chunky.
