Chicken Thighs with Cherry Tomatoes

I'm up to my eyeballs in cherry tomatoes!  I didn't even want cherry tomatoes.  They were mismarked.  Just my luck!  So, when I came across this recipe in the Sunday paper, I knew I must try it out.  It was simple.  It was yummy.  It was a keeper!  If you find yourself with a boat load of cherry tomatoes, you must add this to your grocery list (or you must go out and get yourself some cherry tomatoes).  Enjoy :)

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (mine had the bone-in)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 TBSP olive oil
2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 TBSP balsamic or sherry vinegar

Sprinkle chicken with garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chicken and cook until browned on both sides.  Reduce heat to medium and add tomatoes.  Cook until chicken is done, about 8 minutes on each side.  Sprinkle with vinegar and scrape pan to loosen brown bits.
