Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 1 roma tomato sliced
  • 4 thick slices buffalo mozzarella (about 14 ounces or 400 grams)
  • 4 tablespoons basil shredded
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze (or reduction), store bought

Instructions

  • In a large shallow bowl, mix together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Add in the chicken and allow to marinate for half an hour (if time allows).
    Preheat grill plates over medium heat, and grill chicken for 5-6 minutes each side, or until completely cooked through in the centre, and slightly charred on the outer edges. While chicken is cooking, grill the tomato slices for 1-2 minutes each side. Top each breast with a slice of mozzarella and grilled tomato slice, allowing the heat to melt the cheese.
    To serve, top with the shredded basil and balsamic reduction.

Notes

For a homemade balsamic reduction: simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 teaspoons brown sugar in a small pot over medium heat until thick like a syrup and reduced by half.
