Copycat Balsamic Caprese Chicken
One Pan Balsamic Glazed Caprese Chicken – an easy recipe done in less than 40 minutes. Tender juicy Chicken cooked in balsamic glaze, I guarantee you’ll love it! I found this recipe on Yummly.com, but I think they get their recipes elsewhere. Serves 4-6 Total Time: 35 minutes Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs or chicken breasts cut in half
salt & pepper to season
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup minced red onion
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon course mustard
1 tablespoon honey
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, cut into 6 even slices
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup fresh sliced basil
Season both sides of chicken thighs or breasts with salt and pepper
Heat a large skillet to medium high heat.
Add olive oil and the chicken to the pan. Cook each side of the chicken for 5-8 minutes, until there is no longer any pink. Internal temperature should reach 160F.
Remove chicken from the pan.
Add in garlic and onions. Saute until translucent, about 2 minutes.
Add in balsamic vinegar, mustard, and honey. Using a whisk, stir everything together, being sure to get the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to medium low. Let balsamic simmer for another 3-4 minutes stirring the entire time.
Add the chicken back to the pan, place one slice of mozzarella on each chicken. Cover and let cook on medium low to low for another 3-5 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle the top of the chicken with tomatoes and fresh basil. Yum Yum!
