That being said, for those with sulfite allergies, most vinegar made from grapes contain sulfites. A better choice for those with allergies would be a grain-based vinegar like rice vinegar or cider vinegar which are generally sulfite-free.
Tomatoes in this Bruschetta Chicken Breast Bake
There is a bit of chopping in this recipe. Four to five tomatoes, in fact. However, if you choose firmer Roma tomatoes, it goes very quickly. But in a pinch — drained canned tomatoes can work too.
We call for 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese layered over the chicken breasts. Use this amount as a guide, considering the tastes of your family. At times, I increase the amount, and other times, I eliminate it altogether. You know your crowd and their preferences!
