Here is a beautiful and healthy dinner idea with chicken. Perfect for those dates for two and healthy as ever. It is not simple to have great food and still watch your waist, the Caprese Chicken is however the exception to many calory heavy dinner recipes.
Derived from an Italian dish, the inventor of this beautiful meal has truly served the weight loss and healthy eating community with this gem.
Yield: 4 servings
recipe note: Balsamic vinegar comes in many forms. I really recommend a higher quality one – it truly does make a difference. A low quality balsamic vinegar is very thin – like water. A higher quality one is slightly thicker (not as thick as balsamic glaze, but somewhere in the middle of the two).
4 skinless chicken breasts
kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
10 large basil leaves, finely chopped
8 oz fresh buffalo mozzarella, sliced in 1/2 inch thick slices
balsamic vinegar, to taste
