Default My wife's Balsamic Chicken with Tomato Sauce

My wife made this recipe up when she only had chicken in the freezer and lots of cherry tomatoes to use up!

Assorted chicken pieces - skin on
Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Arrange the chicken pieces skin side up in an oven proof pan. Pour balsamic vinegar generously over the chicken pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and chopped rosemary.

Baste every 5-10 mins. After 20 mins, (or 10 mins before the chicken is cooked) add the halved cherry tomatoes cut side down around the chicken. Shake the pan to coat the tomatoes in the chicken fat and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle the tomatoes with more salt and pepper.

Roast until chicken is cooked through (depends on the size of the pieces) roughly 30 mins.

Serve over pasta or rice with lots of crusty bread! The tomatoes and the vinegar make a lovely sauce for the chicken.
