  2. Mix the remaining balsamic vinaigrette with the tomatoes and onions and place them in a baking pan before topping with the marinated chicken.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until the chicken is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the cheeses over the chicken and place under the broiler until the cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes.

Tip: Cook rice or pasta to serve it over while it is baking!
Note: The bake time will vary a little depending on how thick your chicken is. If it is really thick it might need a few more minutes to cook through.
