Caprese Chicken

I feel like it's often I make something and we think its our new favorite...but really, this is one of our new favorites. So take that for what it's worth.

This is super fast and simple to put together. We had  rotini with pesto on the side and everyone loved it. I used fresh mozzarella but a sprinkling of shredded cheese or a slice would be just fine.

Caprese Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 c. balsamic vinaigrette
2 cloves garlic
1 large tomato or 2 small, sliced
fresh basil leaves
4-8 slices mozzarella cheese
balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction

Pour the balsamic vinaigrette in a ziploc bag and add in the garlic. Marinate the chicken breasts in there for a few hours or even all day. Cook the chicken on a heated grill until cooked through, at the last minute top with tomatoes, basil and cheese and wait until the cheese melts. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar or a balsamic reduction. Enjoy!
