Author Notes: This baked tomato and mozzarella chicken is super delicious and everything you could imagine it to be. The juicy tomatoes, fresh basil and stringy mozzarella give the chicken a lot of flavour. I learnt from cooking this that I put the cheese in far too early. I laced the raw chicken with mozzarella and placed in the oven for the full cooking time.
