Caprese Chicken You can cook Caprese Chicken using 4 ingredients and 10 steps. Here is how you cook that.

Ingredients of Caprese Chicken

  1. You need of chicken, either thighs or thinly-sliced breast.
  2. It's of enough tomatoes for thick slices to cover the chicken pieces.
  3. You need of mozzarella cheese, in log form.
  4. It's of fresh basil.

Caprese Chicken instructions

  1. A word on ingredients: You want thin slices of chicken and tomatoes which will produce slices that just cover the chicken. The chicken pieces should be about the size of your palm or a bit smaller. For the mozzarella, don't use the fresh stuff- the moisture will result in the end product swimming in water..
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 and get some olive oil going in a skillet..
  3. Slice the chicken if necessary and start it frying in the olive oil. The objective is to get it crisp on the outside. You can season it if you like- I use McCormick Garlic and Herb..
  4. Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella such that each slice will just about cover a piece of chicken. Make these slices a bit thicker than you'd think..
  5. Once the chicken is crisp on the outside, spray a baking dish with cooking spray and move the chicken to it..
  6. On each piece of chicken, place a slice of tomato and a slice of mozzarella on top of that..
  7. Bake at 350 and slice some basil while you're waiting. You could also sautee a vegetable in the oil from step 3- leftover bits of tomato are always a winner here, especially if you're using romas...
  8. The cheese will melt down over the tomato and chicken. Take it out when the cheese starts bubbling on top; this will take 10-15 minutes, but don't be afraid to take it out early if the cheese is bubbly..
  9. Sprinkle the chopped basil over the still-hot cheese and wait a few minutes for it all to cool and the cheese to congeal..
  10. Slice sections of melted cheese out of the bottom (this is why we used non fresh mozzarella and sprayed the dish) and serve!.
