Fresh and tasty balsamic marinated grilled chicken topped with melting fresh mozzarella, ripe tomato and plenty of basil!
4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
8 ounce fresh mozzarella ball, sliced
1 ripe field tomato, sliced
1/4 cup basil, sliced
1/4 cup balsamic reduction
1. Marinate the chicken in the balsamic vinaigrette overnight.
2. Grill the chicken in medium-high heat until cooked and slightly charred, about 2-4 minutes per side before topping with the mozzarella and tomato and letting it heat until it just starts to melt.
3. Serve topped with the basil and balsamic reduction.
Note: It’s best to marinate the chicken overnight but you can do it for less time or even skip it and rely on the balsamic reduction for the balsamic flavour.
Note: You can grill the chicken on a barbecue, in a grill pan or regular pan on the stove or broil in the oven.
Note: To make a balsamic reduction, simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar over medium heat until it has reduced by 1/2.
