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!
