Caprese Chicken Skillet

This recipe works for: Lunch | Main Dish | Side

Serving Size: 4
Ingredients:
  • 4 trimmed chicken breast (1 lb)
  • 1 10oz can Salad Ready Tomato Wedges (tri-color or original) with Olive Oil and Italian Spices
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp store bought balsamic glaze
  • Fresh basil

Directions:

  1. Season chicken breast with the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper. The chicken breast will be cooking quickly in a skillet so if they are particularly thick you might want to cut them in half or pound them thin. Each breast is about 4 oz.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and sear on each side for 3 minutes, until golden brown.
  3. Reduce heat and pour the juice from the tomatoes over the chicken breast. Top each breast with ½ oz of shredded mozzarella and then divide the tomato wedges over the top of the chicken. Cover and cook for an addition 5-8 minutes or so, until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temp has reached 165F.
  4. Drizzle the chicken breast with balsamic glaze and top with fresh basil. Enjoy!
