Baked caprese chicken

Baked caprese chicken

This recipe is so summery! Summer means 3 things for me : sun, long nights AND good fresh vegetables/herbs. It’s an ideal recipe for when you have guests : it’s chic, doesn’t require a lot of prepping and bake for 30-45 minutes.

Serve this with a colorful salad, rice or pasta. Most of the sides you can think of would go well with this one.

Choose a good quality mozzarella or you’ll end up with a tasteless dish. And if you feel fancy, drizzle some balsamic glaze before serving.

Baked caprese chicken (serves 2) :

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 big basil leaves
  • 1 tomato
  • 4 slices of mozzarella
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat your oven at 180°C (356°F).

In an oven safe dish, lay your chicken, top it with mozzarella, basil, tomato and drizzle with some olive oil. Salt and pepper it.

Bake for 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the breasts.

Serve warm so the mozzarella oozes everywhere YUM!
