Caprese Chicken

Picture this: juicy fresh tomato slices along with sun dried tomato strips, fresh basil leaves and melted mozzarella cheese, are stuffed inside chicken breasts; then the chicken is seasoned with salt, pepper basil, oregano AND sun dried tomato oil.

THE SAUCE IS EVERYTHING

Like this Balsamic Glazed Caprese Chicken, you’re going to finish off your chicken in the most perfect balsamic reduction — with a hint of garlic — for added flavour. It may SOUND complicated, but it’s one of the MOST easiest chicken recipes I have on Cafe Delites.

This is when all the deliciousness begins to happen. While the chicken bakes with all of these flavours, the juice from both the fresh and sun dried tomatoes begin to mix through the balsamic reduction to create one of the best sauces you’ve EVER TASTED.

Cutting into each piece is of courser the best part.

SO.MUCH.CHEESE.

SOME TIPS:

  • Use a sharp, thin-bladed knife to cut the pockets in the chicken. Start on the thickest side of the bread and work your way in. Just be careful not to cut all the way through, or the cheese will melt through to the other side.
  • I suggest cooking the chicken in sun dried tomato oil reserved from the jar of sun dried tomatoes. You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to, but it adds SO MUCH FLAVOUR to the chicken.
  • You can use store bought balsamic glaze instead of making it from scratch. Just pour in the glaze and allow to warm through for about 20 seconds, then transfer pan to the oven.
