20 Easy Recipes with Chicken and Tomato

Tender, juicy chicken is a nearly universally loved protein. And everyone will tell you that you can’t beat garden-fresh tomatoes. 

When you combine those things, you end up with some fantastic recipes.

Chicken cacciatore and ‘marry me’ chicken are just two examples. In truth, there are almost too many to discuss! 

So for this list, I’ve picked 20 of the very best chicken and tomato recipes. Let’s see if your favorites made the cut.

1. Skillet Tomato Chicken

What’s even juicier than skillet-seared chicken breasts?

Skillet-seared chicken breasts cooked with dozens of juicy grape tomatoes. Did I mention you’ll add red wine vinegar, too?

This one-pan meal is bright, zesty, and perfectly salted, thanks to the capers.

It’s a delicious, nutritious meal you can have ready in just 30 minutes. 

You can thank me later.

2. Chicken Breast with Tomatoes and Garlic

These succulent chicken breasts are lean and garlicky. You’ll also top them with oregano, parsley, and juicy chopped tomatoes. 

It’s a tender, herb-flavored meal with a wonderful aroma and an even better taste. 

I like to serve it atop a bed of couscous. However, you could pair it with roasted asparagus or zucchini for a more low-carb option.

3. Garlic Tomato Basil Chicken

I hate to keep calling these dishes “delicious” and “juicy.”

Unfortunately, when you combine chicken and tomatoes, that’s precisely what you’ll get. Delicious, juicy meals.

So what sets this one apart from all the rest?

Well, for one thing, it needs only seven ingredients, plus salt and pepper.

You can also make it in 20 minutes flat. Additionally, the fantastic garlic butter will have you groaning in pleasure. 

So essentially, it’s quick and easy to make and tastes divine. 

4. Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken tortellini is always a yummy option. But have you ever tried chicken tortellini soup?

It’s every bit as tasty but even more heartwarming and comforting. 

It’s a thick, chunky soup that’ll warm you up on a cold night. Unlike lots of soups, it doesn’t take long to make either.

You can have the whole thing ready in just 30 minutes from scratch.

Serve it with some dark, crusty bread for an even tastier meal.

5. Indian Tomato Chicken Curry (Tamatar Murgh)

This one-pot chicken curry is a must-try for Indian food lovers. It comes together in 40 minutes and will make your whole house smell terrific.

It’s only mildly spiced, so don’t worry if heat isn’t your thing. Unlike some curries, this one won’t set your mouth on fire.

It will have you coming back for seconds, though.

6. Tomato and Garlic Chicken Curry

Do you prefer Indian food with no spices at all? If so, tomato and garlic chicken curry may be the better option for you. 

It features the same yummy seasonings that all curries have. However, there’s not a single bit of heat to the dish.

It has a wonderfully complex, herb flavor that you’ll love.

7. Baked Chicken Thighs With Cherry Tomatoes

I love one-pot baked dinners. You simply cannot beat them when it comes to convenience.

After all, you’ll merely pile everything onto a single pan and pop it in the oven. What could be simpler?!

The garlic and rosemary give the chicken a fabulous taste. Add the bright, garden-fresh tomatoes, and you’ve got a fast favorite.

Just a little forewarning, though: Making this for your family may result in them asking for it at least twice a week. (Luckily, it’s super easy to pull together!)

8. Marry Me Chicken

I’ve heard this recipe called lots of things. Crack chicken. Slap your momma chicken. Chicken bacon spaghetti.

In my house, we’ve always called it marry me chicken. Why, you ask? 

Because it tastes so phenomenal! You could ask someone to marry you over this dish, and they’d have to say yes!

They wouldn’t be able to deny you anything after a single taste. 

I think that says everything that needs to be said about it. Don’t you?

9. Crockpot Spanish Chicken

This slow-cooked chicken dish is similar to a very thick stew. To this day, my grandma still calls it goulash.

It features chicken, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and more. 

If you want, you could eat it by itself like a stew. Serve it with some crumbly cornbread, and call it a meal.

However, I prefer to pour it over a bed of fluffy rice.

Just play around with it. It’s mouth-wateringly delectable no matter how you eat it. The more you experiment, the more you get to eat! 

10. Tomato Braised Chicken Thighs

This saucy chicken dish requires just seven ingredients. It’s rich, savory, and full of flavor. 

It takes about 50 minutes to make, but only 10 minutes is prep time. The rest is pretty much idle simmer time.

In other words, it’s not as quick as some dishes, but it’s 100% as easy to make.

11. Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

I could eat this meal practically every night and not tire of it. It’s out of this world delectable. It’s similar to Caprese chicken but is much saucier. 

The tomatoes add a delicious sweetness and tang to the chicken. The garlic and basil give it a great aroma. 

You can serve it over your favorite type of pasta or with some steamed veggies. It’s not bad on rice, either.

Either way, everyone who tries it is sure to love it. 

12. Sheet Pan Tomato And Artichoke Chicken

This juicy, earthy dish is rich in flavor and nutrients. It requires just a few ingredients but is so good for you.

The artichokes are packed with vitamins and minerals. 

Plus, you can pair it with roasted cauliflower or steamed broccoli. It’s a cheesy, tomato treat that even the kids will love.

And no one has to know how healthy it is either!

13. Baked Chicken Parmesan with Roasted Tomatoes

Chicken parmesan is one of my favorite Italian recipes.

I’d never tried it with roasted tomatoes until recently, though. (I’d always had tomato sauce instead.)

With roasted tomatoes, it still has the same rich, robust flavor. However, it’s juicier and a bit zestier. Any fan of Italian food will adore it!

14. Creamy Tomato Chicken Skillet Dinner

If you’re in the mood for something saucier, this may be the recipe for you.

It has a phenomenal flavor that combines tomatoes, parmesan, and herbs. The creamy sauce is more than delicious; it’s downright decadent.

This elegant, amazing meal will make your guests think they’re really indulging. 

However, each serving has just eight net carbs and a little over 300 calories.

It also packs a whopping 40 grams of protein, so they aren’t actually indulging at all. 

They’re getting an insanely good meal that’s also good for them. 

15. Chicken Chasseur

This delicious chicken dish is perfect for a cozy winter night in! It’s a French dish whose name means “hunter’s chicken.” 

Supposedly, a Parisian hunter loved it so much that he named it after himself. Maybe that’s true, and maybe it’s not. 

Regardless, you’re sure to appreciate this simple, flavorful dish.

Plus, you can easily swap out ingredients to use whatever you have on hand. 

16. Mozzarella Chicken In Tomato Sauce

This dish is where pizza and chicken overlap. You’ll cover each piece of chicken in ooey, gooey cheese and rich tomato sauce. 

It’s a lot like traditional chicken parmesan. Of course, you’ll use mozzarella instead.

However, both meals are incredible and full of Italian flair.  

17. Harissa Chicken Thighs With Olives and Tomatoes

This meal takes a bit of time to prepare and cook. Even so, it’s well worth it because of its phenomenal taste and heartiness. 

The harissa paste gives the chicken a flavorful and spicy kick. Additionally, the olives and tomatoes add a touch of salty sweetness.

This dish is sure to please both adults and kids alike.

And don’t worry, it isn’t super spicy. It’ll make your mouth tingle but won’t set it on fire.

18. One-Pan Greek Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken and Lentils

This one-pan meal is Greek food at its finest. It’s also incredibly healthy, thanks to the tomatoes, lentils, and lean chicken. 

It’s a thick, filling meal, but it’s a bit heavier than most people realize.

Finally, the combination of tangy feta and earthy garlic is exceptional. You’ll want to savor every single bite.

19. Chicken Cacciatore

Does chicken cacciatore even need a description? It’s one of those dishes that I think everyone loves, and not just for the taste, either!

I appreciate how versatile it is. You can tweak the recipe however you like. Want to serve it over rice? Go ahead!

Looking for a healthy pasta dish? It works for that, too. 

As for what to serve with chicken cacciatore, you can’t go wrong with some crispy potatoes!

20. One-Pan Tomato Basil Chicken & Rice

Let’s finish this list with a final one-pan meal. Tomato basil chicken and rice is flavorful and aromatic.

Stick it in the oven, and your whole house will smell terrific. 

Honestly, I don’t know what’s better, the chicken or the rice. Fortunately, you won’t have to choose between them.

Just mix it all up and enjoy every mouthful.
