Caprese Balsamic Grilled Chicken
Prep Time:5 minutes Marinate Time:8 hours Cook Time:15 minutes Total Time:20 minutesServings: 4
Fresh and tasty balsamic marinated grilled chicken topped with melting fresh mozzarella, ripe tomato and plenty of basil!


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • mozzarella ball, sliced
  • 1 ripe field tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 cup basil, sliced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic reduction


  1. Marinate the chicken in the balsamic vinaigrette overnight.
  2. Grill the chicken in medium-high heat until cooked and slightly charred, about 2-4 minutes per side before topping with the mozzarella and tomato and letting it heat until it just starts to melt.
  3. Serve topped with the basil and balsamic reduction.

Note: It’s best to marinate the chicken overnight but you can do it for less time or even skip it and rely on the balsamic reduction for the balsamic flavour.
