  • 4 Basil Leaves
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

  • Pre-heat the grill pan to medium heat. Use your oil to grease the pan. Use a paper towel to spread the oil over the grill pan.

  • Cook the chicken on one side for about 4 minutes to cook about 2/3 of the way so that the white cooked chicken is coming up the sides.
  • Flip over the chicken and cook for another minute or 2.

  • To turn the grilled chicken into chicken caprese, add the sliced mozzarella on top.

  • If you want to melt the cheese a bit, you can heat the oven to 300 degrees F. Then, take the grill plate and put it right in the oven.
  • Add the mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes on top. Let it heat up for 5 minutes. Top of the salad by drizzling of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar over the top.
