Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Season chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear chicken in hot oil until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Add tomatoes, white wine, and balsamic vinegar to the skillet; cook to just soften the tomatoes, about 2 minutes.
  4. Lay mozzarella cheese slices onto the chicken breasts and move the skillet to the preheated oven.
  5. Bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Garnish with basil to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Protect the skillet handle by wrapping it in a double layer of aluminum foil before placing it in the hot oven.

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.
