Hunter's-Style Chicken with Rosemary

There is nothing more delightful than a simple dish cooked in a very straightforward manner using really good ingredients. What comes off it is nothing short of amazing. Take this dish for instance. It is basically made up of 4 ingredients: chicken, rosemary, garlic and diced tomatoes. The steps required to complete the dish is very basic and even if you are a most likely candidate for the show Worst Cooks in America, you might just ace this one. 

Straight off from Lidia's website, There was nothing to modify other than to add a simple garnish of basil leaves. I was indulging myself since a friend gave me fresh basil leaves from an organic garden and they smelled heavenly. It was just begging to be used in a culinary way.
