Ingredients

For The Chicken:

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4 fillets
  • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning*
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (for cooking)

For The Topping:

  • 4 Roma tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1/4 of a red onion finely chopped (or 3 cloves finely chopped garlic)
  • 4 tablespoons shredded fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup freshly shaved parmesan cheese

Balsamic Glaze: (you can use store bought, or this recipe)

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar (OPTIONAL)

Instructions

  • Season chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic and salt. Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet, and sear chicken breasts over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through (about 6 minutes each side). Remove from pan; set aside and allow to rest.
  • Combine the tomatoes, red onion, basil, olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt. Top each chicken breast with the tomato mixture and parmesan cheese.
  • Serve immediately with balsamic glaze (optional).

For The Balsamic Glaze:

  • (If making from scratch, prepare while chicken is cooking.) Combine sugar (if using) and vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low; allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced to a glaze. (If not using sugar, allow to reduce for 12-15 minutes on low heat).

Notes

*If you don't have Italian seasoning, use Italian dried herbs. Or combine 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried basil, and 1 teaspoon dried parsley together.
