Mealthy Tip

Julienne (or cut into long thin strips) the basil by placing a few leaves on top of each other, then roll up vertically, resulting in a tight cylinder of leaves. Using a very sharp knife, cut the cylinder into thin slices. Shake out basil with your fingers and sprinkle over chicken. Serve this over spaghetti tossed with olive oil and a glass of Cabernet on the side for a complete meal.

One of the best combinations in the food world is tomatoes, mozarella, and fresh basil drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Add chicken to that mix and you have a star. I love the hot tomatoes with the melted cheese and how they present a new take on the classic cold dish. The amount of cheese was a bit much for me so I cut it back quite a bit by just thin slices over each breast.

This is a classic chicken caprese recipe that was really easy to make! I loved the cheesy mozzarella on top, it was so good. I served it with pasta tossed in olive oil, it was wonderful.

Tried this as a sandwich using ciabatta. So good, especially when you drizzle the bread and chicken with extra sauce (thanks for the tip). This is a great recipe for when you want to change up your routine chicken dish.

I didn't have any basil, (I know, I know), but this recipe still turned out fantastic. I garnished it with parsley instead. Everyone loved it! The mozzarella cheese and sauce really won me over.

Served this with whole wheat spaghetti and it was really good. This is a great recipe for the kids too. I just don’t garnish theirs with basil.
