Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lb chicken breasts, boneless skinless
  • 1 small pkg fresh basil
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 tomatoes
  • balsamic vinegar
  • black pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry the fresh produce.
    • 6 tomatoes
    • 1 small pkg fresh basil
  2. Preheat a grill pan or regular skillet over medium heat.
  3. Trim off and discard the root ends of the garlic; peel and mince or press the garlic. Transfer to a medium bowl (that will be used to marinade the chicken).
    • 2 cloves garlic
  4. To the garlic, add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper; whisk together.
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
  5. Pat dry the chicken breasts with paper towels and place in the bowl with the marinade; turn to coat.
    • 1 ½ lb chicken breasts, boneless skinless
  6. Carefully place the chicken breasts in the grill pan / skillet; cook until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through (check doneness with a thermometer or cut into the chicken with a knife), 6 to 8 minutes per side. Once done, transfer the chicken to plate.
  7. Slice the tomatoes crosswise into ¼-inch-thick rounds and arrange on a large plate.
  8. Tear the mozzarella into small chunks with your hands and add on top of the tomato slices.
    • 1 (8 oz) pkg fresh mozzarella cheese
  9. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; tear the leaves into small pieces with your hands and scatter on top of the tomato slices and mozzarella chunks.
  10. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
  11. Slice the chicken crosswise into strips.
  12. To serve, divide the salad and chicken slices between plates. Enjoy!
