To make an easy chicken, tomatoes and capers recipe, cook four boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a skillet containing 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once the chicken is browned, remove it from the skillet, and add another tablespoon of olive oil. Over medium-high heat, cook one chopped onion until it is tender, then add three minced cloves of garlic. After one minute, add two cans of diced tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of capers, one 6-ounce package of baby spinach and 2 tablespoons of fresh basil. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Return the chicken to the skillet, and cook everything for eight to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the chicken and sauce with 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Another easy recipe requires the oven rather than the stove. Combine three chopped tomatoes, 1 teaspoon of capers, one handful of olives and the juice from half a lemon in a bowl. Rub olive oil over a baking dish, then add the chicken breasts. Pour the tomato and caper mixture over the chicken, and roast at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle the chicken with chopped basil, and serve.
