Original recipe yields 4 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a shallow platter and lay chicken breasts on top. Rub with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until browned, about 4 minutes per side.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking dish. Place tomatoes and green onions in the baking dish and pour chicken broth on top.

  • Combine mustard, rosemary, and thyme in a small bowl and brush onto chicken breasts. Place chicken breasts on top of the vegetables in the baking dish. Cover with Gruyere cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven on the middle rack until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was really tasty and full of flavor! I made the recipe exactly as written except I added the cheese in the last 10 mins of baking. The herbs and mustard provide a nice bunch of flavor combined with the tangy lemon and sweet cherry tomatoes. I served this with rice and sauteed green beans. Start checking the chicken before 30 mins as mine was done around 22-23 minutes. Pound the chicken to an even thickness of about 3/4" before starting. This will go into my regular rotation and is impressive enough to serve to guests! Read More

I made this almost exactly as written I misread the Ingredients and ending up getting spicy brown mustard and no spices so I used the mustard and an Italian mix. I added green beans to the bottom of the dish for added veggies. My only suggestion is cut slightly thicker pieces of cheese if using spicy mustard because the mustard is over powering. All in all it was a great dish that my husband and I loved. Read More

We thought this was really good and we love the cheese. The fresh herbs were a little overpowering for our personal taste. Be careful not to cook the chicken too much in the skillet because it will cook for 30 minutes in the oven. Read More
