Chicken with Mozzarella, Cherry Tomatoes & Basil

I love this recipe.  It’s very simple to make and the tomato and basil sauce with the mini mozzarella balls is delicious and complements the chicken coated in Panko breadcrumbs perfectly! 

This lovely recipe is taken from Annabel’s most recent recipe book Real Food Kids Will Love
