I love having easy, go-to dinner recipes that I can turn to on busy nights.
This Caprese Chicken recipe is one of my favorites. It only takes 30 minutes to make and is a delicious, flavor-packed dinner.
I used +Non GE/+Non GMO Forester Farmer’s Market™, which is a is a butcher-shop quality chicken that has been fed 100% locally sourced and non genetically engineered/non genetically modified (+Non GE/+Non GMO) grains. The chicken is available at select Sam's Club locations.
This caprese chicken recipe is great to make in summer when tomatoes and basil are fresh, and I serve it with a simple green salad and a whole-grain bread.
This chicken re-heats well, and I always look forward to the leftovers for lunch the next day. Give it a try, and you'll want to add it to your regular dinner rotation, too!
