Simple Caprese Chicken combines the delicious flavors of the traditional Italian salad. Fresh tomatoes, gooey mozzarella, tangy balsamic vinegar and roasted chicken are a quick dinner on the table in 30 minutes!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a small bowl combine sliced tomatoes, garlic, basil, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt/pepper. Allow to sit and marinate for a few minutes while you prepare the chicken.
Using a sharp knife, slice the chicken lengthwise but not cutting all the way through. You want it to open like a book. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Place 2 slices of marinated tomatoes and 1 slice of mozzarella in the middle of each chicken breast. Close and secure with 2 toothpicks.
Place each chicken breast on a greased baking sheet or casserole dish.
Drizzle the tops of the chicken with the remaining Tablespoon of olive oil.
Bake for 18-25 minutes, depending on how thick your chicken is.
