Recipe: Caprese Chicken

You know those videos you see on Facebook that make cooking look easy and whatever food they are making look like the most amazing dish on earth? Well, that’s where this recipe is from.

This was inexpensive, easy, and SO tasty. I had it for lunch for a week and loved it every time, even warmed up in the microwave. Β I’m not even a huge Caprese person but this was seriously so good. The trick is to use this glaze in addition to balsamic vinegar. As long as you like chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, garlic and balsamic, you will like this. Best part? It tastes like a cheat meal but it’s still healthy! My only complaint: This desperately needs a side. It’s very filling, but doesn’t feel like quite enough. Try serving with a side salad for more satisfaction.
