  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Core the tomato and halve it lengthwise; slice 1/2 inch thick. 
  2. 2. In a 9×13-inch pan, toss all the ingredients except 1 tablespoon basil. Roast until the chicken is cooked through and the tomato is softened, about 20 minutes. Garnish with the remaining tablespoon basil. The sauce will be thin, so serve with crusty bread for sopping or over rice.
