Roasted Chicken Breasts with Herbes de Provence Tomato Sauce


1 pound Kosher boneless Chicken Breasts
2 lbs. Ripe Cherry Tomatoes, split
2 tbs. Tomato Paste
6 tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
2 tbs. Herbes de Provence (See recipe this Blog.)
Kosher Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 Shallot, minced
2 tbs. Red Wine Vinegar
3 tbs. Parsley, chopped
3 tbs. fresh Tarragon leaves, minced


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine tomatoes, 2 tablespoons oil, and herbes de Provence in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large heavy ovenproof skillet until oil shimmers. Add tomatoes to pan. Transfer the skillet to oven and roast, turning once, until tomatoes give up some of their juices, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and drizzle with Worcestershire sauce.

Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear chicken on both sides until golden brown, 6–8 minutes. Transfer pan to oven and roast chicken until cooked through, 8–10 minutes. Remove the chicken to a pan and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to same skillet; heat over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Deglaze pan with vinegar, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan; add tomatoes, the paste and their juices and simmer until sauce is just beginning to thicken, about 1 minute. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Slice chicken; divide among plates. Spoon tomatoes and sauce over; garnish with herbs.

Serve with a fresh salad, potato, green vegetable, some fish, Israel Kosher Wine, Challah and of course light two Candles. Scrub the kids until they shine, put on your best dress, say a few prayers and your all set for Shabbat. Shomer the Sabbath it a very special day for you so keep it Holy. Shabbat Shalom
