  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • Fresh basil, chopped
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Salt and pepper

Chicken marinade:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  • Combine the marinade ingredients together and pour over the chicken breasts. Allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Prepare the grill to medium heat. Grill the chicken breasts for 4 minutes on one side. After flipping the chicken, add two slices of mozzarella cheese and top with two slices of tomato and grill for 4 minutes longer. (Thick chicken breasts may require 2-3 minutes longer grilling time.)
  • Remove the chicken from the grill once it's done cooking. Add a pinch of fresh basil and drizzle each chicken breast with the balsamic glaze.
