Sauteed chicken with yellow grape tomatoes

This recipe caught my eye because it is so simple! It's so simple and easy that after reading it you just might think "oh wow I could've thought of that" or at least that's what I did anyway. It's sauteed chicken with grape tomatoes, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and topped with fresh basil. We tossed it all with orzo to complete the meal! It was fantastic and a keeper for sure.

Simple sauteed chicken with yellow grape tomatoes inspiration from epicurious & Bon Appetit
   Recipe as written serves 2; add in the orzo and it can serve 3-4

2 tbsp olive oil
2 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
   (we used a small package of chicken breast tenderloins that we diced)
1 cup yellow grape tomatoes, halved
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil

   Heat olive oil in heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; add to skillet. Sauté chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to 2 plates. Add tomatoes and garlic to skillet; sauté 1 minute. Add balsamic vinegar; sauté 30 seconds. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Add chicken back to the pan.
   While preparing the chicken we cooked 1 cup orzo according to package directions. Once cooked we added it to the pan after the chicken.
   Divide into dishes, sprinkle with basil and serve.
