5-Ingredient Caprese Chicken

May 1, 2018

 

This is such a simple chicken recipe with just a few ingredients. I made it with a side of brown rice pasta topped with jarred pesto, but if you want to keep it low-carb, it would be great with a side salad, roasted veggies, etc. If you think of it ahead of thyme, I recommend letting the chicken marinate all day. Otherwise you can throw it into the pan right with the dressing and it will still be great!

 

Total Thyme: 15 minutes hands-on (maybe additional thyme for chicken to marinade)

 

Serves: 2-4 (makes 4 pieces of chicken)

 

Ingredients:

Balsamic Dressing: about 1/3 bottle (I use Tessamae’s Organic

 

Chicken Breasts: 2

 

Fresh Mozzarella: 4 thick slices

 

Fresh Basil: 8 leaves

 

Tomato: 1 large

 

Salt & Pepper

 

Directions:

Cut your chicken breasts in half length -wise so you have 4, thinner pieces.

 

Add some salt and pepper to each side.

 

Use a knife to poke little slits in each piece and marinade them in the balsamic.

 

Add a drizzle of oil or non-stick spray to pan and cook chicken over medium heat.

 

When the chicken is almost cooked through, add a slice of tomato, 2 slices of basil, and a slice of mozzarella to each piece. Cover and let them cook for another 2 minutes until the cheese is melted.

 

Your chicken is done! Enjoy.
