Grilled chicken topped with basil pesto (green), mozzarella (white) and tomato (red), inspired by the flavours of Margherita pizza!
- Marinate the chicken in the balsamic vinaigrette along with the italian seasoning for 30 minutes to overnight.
- 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.
- 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.
