Chicken with Tomato and Onion

This summer chicken dish is perfect when you want to whip up something quick, easy and light! A naturally gluten free, dairy free and low carb dish, great for a keto diet. More of my favorite easy chicken recipes are Caprese Chicken Skillet, Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Melted Mozzarella. Also this Zesty Lime Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa.

These roasted veggies are so good so good together and so pretty. This would also be great over fish such as flounder or sole. This is such a light, guiltless meal I would eat for lunch. Since the points are so low, you can easily make this a heartier meal, especially if making this for dinner.  I would serve this with a side of rice, roasted potatoes or squash or even over a bed of salad with maybe a drizzle of balsamic.

  1. This was so very good and easy to make. I grilled the chicken and served it with a side of pesto pasta. Such good flavor and delicious! 

  2. I just started WW and this recipe was perfect.  It was extremely easy and quick.  Had great flavor.  I grilled the chicken on the BBQ while the veggies were in the oven.   Chicken was tender.   I served it over a serving of brown rice.   Perfect for a WW menu.  I would absolutely make this again, whether on WW or not.

  3. Cooked this meal for dinner tonight and have to tell you how much we enjoyed it! Cooked it with wild rice and a roasted vegetable medley. Just perfect. The little nip from the pepper flakes certainly hit the spot! Thank you for all the wonderful recipes!

  4. Super easy and delicious. I marinated the chicken for a few hours in a simple dressing. Roasted asparagus as a side and served with white rice. Colorful plate! Great for a weeknight meal.

  5. This recipe was so easy, quick, and delicious to make! I lightly sprinkled the chicken with some Herbs de Provence as well. I will definitely be making this again. 

  6. I’m in the kitchen and making this for dinner right now! Received the information on the new WW program and this recipe is the PERFECT choice.

  7. I had this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I didn’t have herbes de Provence so in a pinch I used a little bit of oregano, coriander and sage instead.

  8. Had this for dinner last night. My husband and I both loved it. Was a very quick and easy meal to prepare for a busy weekday. 

  9. I made this with regular yellow onions and I added yellow squash and tomatoes fresh from the garden. When I cooked the chicken I added some onion and sautéed the onions with the chicken in olive oil. This was a very tasty meal! I will be cooking it again. 

  10. Made this tonight and it was delicious.  My son, who doesn’t like tomatoes or onions, ate two pieces.  I love the sweetness of the tomatoes.  I had to broil the veggies at the end to get the right char.  I may have overcrowded my pan though because I doubled the recipe. I definitely recommend this dish. 

  11. I add pure maple and balsamic vinegar and its so tasty.

  12. Could I roast everything in the oven at once and add more veggies?

  13. Absolutely delicious! I didn’t cut the tomatoes qmd I omitted the salt on the chicken. My husband I really enjoyed it.

  14. I just made this tonight and it’s so good. refreshing and healthy. I love it! Thank you!

  15. Made this using grilled peppers and onions instead of using the tomatoes and it was amazing! 

  16. This was absolutely deeeelicious! I ended up using Roma tomatoes cut into 6 wedges, as the cherry tomatoes were 5 times the price. But the flavours were incredible! My picky fiance even went for a second helping of veggies, which is unheard of! Can’t wait to make it again!

  18. I made this and it was nice enough but a bit boring really. I probably wont bother again with this one.

  19. I rarely leave comments for anything but felt compelled to for this recipe.  I have made this recipe for my husband and I three times now and it has been fabulous each time!  It has quickly become one of my husband’s favorite meals.  In fact,  he eats the leftovers for breakfast in the morning.  Tonight I had some leftovers from a roasted chicken from Sam’s Club and wanted to use it.  So I steamed the chicken in a little chicken broth and baked this tomato and onion recipe in the oven, then served the chicken smothered with this tomato and onion recipe.  So good!!  Thank you for this recipe Gina – It’s got such great flavor!  We love it!!   

  20. OMG! This was amazing and very easy to prepare. The vegetables were especially tasty. Will be making this one many times over – thank you!

  21. delicious…definitely trying this out!!

  22. Made this last night, doubling the recipe to have enough for two meals for the two of us. Very tasty, though I might cut down on the salting of the meat before cooking.

    As someone about to start Weight Watchers, I'm glad I found this site when I did and look forward to trying many kinds of recipes. Thank you!

  23. I made this and it was delicious. My tomatoes got a little mushy so I think I will leave them whole next time.

  24. I just made this and it was great! I cubed the chicken and cooked in a skillet to make it easier. We had it over rice. Will make it again for sure. Thanks for yet another wonderful dinner!

  25. Made it tonight and it was a hit!! Thank you for the recipe

  26. This looks DELISH! Can't get over the lower points with SP vs. PP in WW – that's wonderful news.

  27. Delicious!! I served it with oven baked risotto. I also browned the chicken and then threw that in the oven too. Dinner took 35 minutes and looked like I had slaved for hours. Thank you Gina and keep the recipes coming!!!

  28. This was crazy delicious – added asparagus to the roasted veggies and marinated the chicken in lemon, oregano, garlic, used Gina's Mediterranean marinade before BBQing. Great combination of veggies and so easy.

  29. I can't wait to try this….any suggestions for a side?

  30. This is lovely!! Wasn't sure how this would go over with my husband but he gave it 5 stars. The roasted tomatoes, onions and garlic gave it such a beautiful lightly zesty, tangy flavor that was quite surprising. Gina, thank you so much. I need to get back on Weight Watchers. With recipes like this it will make it so easy to follow. You are amazing…

  31. Wow! This looks delicious!

  32. looks great. I would even toss them with a little balsamic at the end.

  33. what is herbs de provence

  34. When it says "garnish with remaining chopped basil"…what do I do with the basil first? It doesn't say anything about how much to put in with the roast veggies…help?

    • Based on what I know about basil, I would think you'd only want to garnish at the end. Putting it on the roasted veggies while they are roasting might cause it to burn, it burns quickly!

    • Good point, just add the basil last.

  35. So easy but so good!

  36. I don't like tomato…what would be a good veggie to replace it with?

  37. I'm in love. This looks awesome. Making Cheeseburger casserole for supper but I will have to make this next. Thanks for all your hard work. I love your recipes.

  38. Gina, I just love your recipes! I wanted to know if you pounded the chicken after you cut them lengthwise? Would that help to keep them on the tender side? Thank you for all your hard work and delicious offerings:)

    • I pound my chicken first and then I cut it length wise. Then I soak mine in milk and it makes it very tender

    • Thank you Princess:) They look like they have been pounded in the photos. I've never heard of soaking them in milk before…hmmm… About how long would you soak them for?

  39. Sounds very light, fresh and tasty! I'm thinking a shaving of fresh parmesan on top would be lovely too!

  40. Looks great… Why so high in cholesterol? One serving has 87 grams of cholesterol, that's two hefty servings of cholesterol which should be divided into 2 meals… and it's still high!

  41. Just portioned several chicken breasts into cutlets last night and wasn't sure what I'd end up doing with any of them – perfect timing. Thanks!

    Looks easy and tasty – tomorrow's dinner is now planned!

  42. Can't wait to try 🙂 Looks so good and simple!!
