Best Caprese Chicken Recipe

Tomatoes cooked in balsamic vinegar are the perfect sweet-tart compliment to this cheesy chicken.


1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
cloves garlic, minced
1 pt. grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. freshly torn basil
slices mozzarella


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until golden and cooked through, 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add balsamic vinegar to skillet, then add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add tomatoes and season with salt. Let simmer until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in basil.
  3. Return chicken to skillet and nestle in tomatoes. Top with mozzarella and cover with a lid to melt.
  4. Spoon tomatoes over chicken and serve.
