Grilled Chicken Caprese

My recently planted basil herb has exploded with leaves, which is great because that means my non-green thumb didn’t kill it, but now I’m on the hunt for recipes that utilize the fragrant herb. I love insalata caprese, which is simply layers of tomato, mozzarella, and basil, that’s drizzled with balsamic vinegar. This recipe will be your new favorite twist on the traditional insalata caprese, because it turns an appetizer salad into a full meal by adding grilled balsamic-marinated chicken breast in the mix; it looks fancy but is super easy to prepare. If you ever don’t feel like firing up the grill, just cook the chicken in a crock-pot with the balsamic!

 

Fun fact: Did you know the oil extracted from basil has anti-microbial properties against many pathogens that can cause food-borne illnesses? (A basil infused kitchen cleaner would smell amazing).
