Caprese Chicken Skillet



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Rub the chicken thighs all over with olive oil and generously season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron or other oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the chicken, cover and cook until browned on one side, about 3 minutes.
  5. Turn the chicken, then add the potatoes to the skillet.
  6. Allow the chicken to cook, covered, until browned on the other side, another 3 minutes.
  7. Add the cherry tomatoes, transfer the pan to the oven and roast, uncovered, until the chicken and potatoes are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and toss in the bocconcini and garnish with basil.
