Tomato-Topped Chicken Recipe

Tomato slices and basil give garden-fresh flavor to this moist, tender chicken from Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington. "I keep a resealable bag of individually frozen chicken breasts in my freezer, so it's easy to take out just two for this recipe," she notes.

"The only other thing I'd add is to make sure the chicken breasts are close to the same size. It was very tasty!"
