Parmesan and Herb Baked Chicken with Seasonal Tomato Salad Recipe

Chicken is always a crowd-pleaser. This recipe features LuckyMeals USDA certified organic chicken, which is fed a 100% veggie-based diet, cage-free, certified humane, and free of antibiotics, growth hormones, and chemical preservatives.

These boneless, skinless chicken breasts are tender, juicy, clean and flavorful. Lean protein never tasted better. Perfect for rubs and marinades, pan cooking and grilling!

This chicken dish replaces breaded chicken to give you a low-carb or gluten-free alternative. Pro tip: If the tomatoes for the salad are large enough, try scoring them and blanching in boiling water for 5 seconds and peeling the skin before dressing. The meat of the tomato is absorbent and quite refreshing soaked in olive oil!
