I’m so excited to have Krysta from KrystaSteen.com sharing a delicious and easy recipe with us today for Caprese Chicken. I am always on the hunt for easy chicken recipes to make for my family so I am adding this one to my menu! Thanks, Krysta!
Hello Taylor House readers! I’m so happy to be back with all of you, sharing another great recipe!
My name is Krysta and I blog over at KrystaSteen.com! Hop on over and introduce yourself!
Today, I am sharing this amazing Caprese Chicken. We recently had this, served with steamed artichokes. It was a hit!
I LOVE a good caprese salad. It is so refreshing and delicious! Matched with chicken breasts, this makes a great, filling meal!
Here is how to make this easy Chicken Recipe:
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- olive oil
- 1 container grape or cherry tomatoes
- fresh mozzarella cheese
- 1 bunch fresh basil
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- salt and pepper, to taste
- balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven broiler.
In a large saute pan (may have to do this in batches, depending on how big your pan is), heat a tablespoon or so of oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper (I used Trader Joe’s Garlic Salt instead of plain salt and it was really good!). Cook chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through, turning at least once to lightly brown both sides.
While chicken is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in another pan. Cook garlic for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add basil, stir, and remove from heat.
Place cooked chicken in a greased baking dish, top with sliced fresh mozzarella and tomato mixture. Place under broiler just until cheese is bubbly and starts to brown.
Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar to taste.
