Caprese Chicken

Baked Caprese Chicken with Italian seasoned chicken breast, with a sweet balsamic vinegar glaze, and melted mozzarella cheese

Makes 4 ( 4 oz.) servings

What ingredients do I need to make this Baked Caprese Chicken?

  • Fat free or light Italian salad dressing – I use light Olive Garden Italian dressing
  • Chicken seasoning or 1 chicken bullion
  • Dry Italian dressing seasoning
  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 slices (1 oz. pieces)
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes, diced
  • Fresh torn basil leaves
  • Balsamic glaze (I use Trader Joe’s)

The balsamic glaze really enhances the flavor. I get this one from Trader Joe’s but most grocery stores carry it.

You would find it by the balsamic vinegar or salad dressings. Be sure it says glaze on the bottle.  You can also find it on Amazon.

This Caprese Chicken was a HUGE hit with my family but especially with my father, (who doesn’t care for chicken)! He liked it so much, he asked for seconds! Definitely a new family favorite!
