Baked Chicken in Creamy Tomato Sauce


3-4 boneless chicken breasts or tenders, rinsed and patted dry.
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1- 15 oz. can tomatoes
3 tablespoons mascarpone (I used softened cream cheese)
Handful fresh basil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown chicken breasts over high heat in extra virgin olive oil 2 minutes per side. Remove breasts. They do not have to be cooked through. Turn heat to medium/low and add onion and garlic.  After 2 minutes stir in crushed tomatoes and simmer 10-15 minutes. Stir in mascarpone and basil. Add chicken back to the pan immersing in sauce. Bake in 350 degree oven, uncovered, 20 minutes.  I will certainly make this again.
