It is a perfect recipe for cherry tomato season if you have sweet cherry tomato, try this easy recipe. My friend grows tomatoes in her backyard garden. She gives me a bag full of it every time I visit here. I often use it in a salad, with lettuce, cucumber, a pinch of pepper, and salt. Love the freshness.
I was searching for a chicken recipe when I first saw this dish since I have sweet cherry tomato, which gives me a hint to give it a go! Although I don’t have olives at hand. So I went to the supermarket and found pitted olives that cost 30 dollars for 1 kilo, which is not too bad. Since you don’t need 1kilo for this recipe, you can keep it in the fridge for the next batch. In another supermarket, they are selling pitted olives in 100 grams, good for one batch cooking.
