Caprese Chicken Recipe is an easy dinner recipe that turns boneless, skinless chicken breasts into a delicious 30 minute meal!
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.
Each piece of chicken is topped with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese, sautéed grape tomatoes, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
The simplicity of this recipe makes it a great dinner to make in summer when tomatoes and basil are fresh. I serve it with a simple green salad and a loaf of 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!
