I am in major big time whoa love with this Caprese Chicken. A few months ago Jorge and I happened to find ourselves in one of those chain Italian restaurants like Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill. I honestly can’t remember which, but I do know I ordered something called bruschetta chicken. It was good, but could use some improvements.
For starters, I wanted to make it with cherry tomatoes and add some fresh buffalo mozzarella. Then to finish it off, drizzle on a little bit of my favorite aged balsamic vinegar (check out the notes section of the recipe to see what makes a good quality balsamic vinegar!).
Obviously it would no longer be a bruschetta dish anymore — with the additions it would now have to be called a Caprese Chicken. Either way, who doesn’t love more cheese and balsamic vinegar??
I kept thinking about this recipe idea…but then I used the cherry tomatoes I bought and made some Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes. I have so many tomato recipes I love (Panera Creamy Tomato Soup Copycat Recipe), but this one is probably my absolute favorite.
Despite having had this idea in the back of my head, it took me two months to actually make it. That was the dumbest move on my part, because Jorge and I love it so much that we have already made this Caprese Chicken five times!
Delicious healthy dinner in 30 minutes or less? Count me in! The recipe is easily divided and can be made just for two…and as long as you watch your cheese and olive oil — it’s also healthy! My favorite side dishes for this are some buttery noodles (with a squeeze of lemon) and possibly some garlic bread if we are feeling extra carby. Of course – the garlic bread makes it much less healthy…but who cares. It’s delicious.
