I am so in love with this right now! I tried this Tomato Basil Chicken last night for the first time. 

I got the original recipe here.

Sooo good. I had it for left overs for lunch today. Just. as. good.

Try it. 

Seriously.
What you'll need:

2 Chicken breasts
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 C fresh tomatoes, chopped
   *about 3 tomoatoes
2 tsp minced fresh garlic 
4 Tbsp cold butter
1/2 C fresh basil, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Pasta
   *I used Mostaccioli
Parmigiano reggiano cheese, for garnish (I didn't know where this was so I didn't use it; still good)

Start by defrosting your chicken and starting your water for your pasta.

While your chicken is defrosting you can also chop your tomatoes and basil.
You will also want to heat your oil, you need it hot! I put mine to medium heat.
The water for your noodles is hopefully boiling by this point. Go ahead and toss in your noodles to get them going.

Once you meat is thawed out beat it. 

Yes.

I did just say beat your meat. This is the time to let out some pent up frustration. Plus, its pretty fun, not going to lie. 

I used a rolling pin because I'm not fancy enough to have a mallet.
You don't want them to break apart just get them thinner so they are easier to cook.

Add some salt and pepper on you chicken and then toss them in the the pan. 

Watch out! You don't want to be splashed by hot oil. 

I used tongs to avoid getting hit.
Let your chicken cook for about 4-5 minutes on the first side...
Cook the other side for about 4-5 minutes as well...

Next you will want to add your tomatoes, again be careful of flying oils!
Next add your fresh basil. It smells so good!
Add your garlic...
And butter...
Then give your pan a good stir. 

You want all your yummy ingredients to meld together.
Let your sauce heat through and simmer for a minute. 

Your noodles should about ready; once the noodles are done to your liking drain them.

Serve your sauce over your noodles in individual bowls.
