Prep Time:10 minutes Marinate Time:8 hours Cook Time:15 minutes Total Time:25 minutes Servings: 4

Grilled chicken topped with basil pesto (green), mozzarella (white) and tomato (red), inspired by the flavours of Margherita pizza!

  1. Marinate the chicken in the balsamic vinaigrette along with the italian seasoning for 30 minutes to overnight.
  2. Grill (or pan sear) the chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through and slightly charred, about 2-4 minutes per side, before topping with the mozzarella and letting it heat until it just starts to melt.
  3. Serve topped with the basil pesto, diced tomatoes, and fresh sliced basil!

Note: It’s best to marinate the chicken overnight but you can do it for less time or even skip it.
Note: You can grill the chicken on a barbecue/grill, or in a grill pan, or pan sear it on the stove or broil in the oven.
