If you are looking to prepare this for a crowd, I would suggest you purchase chicken tenderloins instead so that it makes the pieces uniform in size and there is less work since you won’t have to slice the chicken into portion sizes.

    Carrie,
    This looks terrific. Do I just chop the tomatoes? I had the kids remove all the tomato plants from the garden/strip the tomatoes from the vines, and I’ve been processing pints and quarts of tomatoes all day. Would love to sit down to this.
