Generously cover tomatoes with grated cheese (I used a mixture of Cheddar and Monterrey) and place in a 400° oven, uncovered:

Bake at 400° for 50-60 minutes if using bone-in chicken pieces or 40 minutes for boneless. Chicken is done when internal chicken temp reaches 165°.

Oh, momma! The cheese makes a crispy topping and the chicken is tender and flavorful.
