Step 1

Preheat the oven to 220°C (430°F). Lightly spray a baking dish with cooking spray.

Step 2

With a sharp knife, slice the red onion thinly, and halve the cherry tomatoes. Arrange the prepared tomatoes and red onion at the bottom of the dish, season with salt, pepper, dried oregano, and basil. Mix them and set them aside.

Step 3

Place the chicken breasts on your board, drizzle with some olive oil, season with salt, pepper, oregano, and basil. Sprinkle one tablespoon of the minced garlic over the chicken breasts and rub the seasoning and garlic on each side. Arrange the chicken breasts over the tomato and onion slices. Set aside.

Step 4

In a small bowl, mix the balsamic vinegar and one tablespoon of brown sugar thoroughly until dissolved. Once incorporated, pour the sauce mixture over the chicken breasts, flip them to season and evenly coat both sides.

Step 5

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken looks tender and done. (Give it more time if necessary, based on the thickness of your chicken breasts). Remove from the heat and add the shredded Fresh Mozzarella Cheese all over the chicken breasts. Continue to bake for 4-5 minutes until the cheese looks bubbly and melted with a light golden top.
