Pinterest WIN: Balsamic Vinaigrette Chicken

A new FAVORITE in this house hold! 

Chicken marinated in balsamic vinegar, olive oil & crushed garlic topped with a basil leaf, mozzarella and a tomato slice or red pepper. Pinterest WIN!!!!!!!!


I marinated the chicken breasts in a zip lock bag for a couple of hours using an pomegranate balsamic vinegar that I have, along with extra virgin olive oil and some crushed garlic.
Grill or bake your chicken (350 for 15 minutes each side, I had to do 45 minutes for our thick breasts) and when its done place fresh mozzarella on top along with basil leaves and either a garden fresh tomato slice or a roasted red pepper. Garnish and drizzle with a balsamic glaze! Perfection in each bite!

Only thing that would have made this dinner more perfect would have been a glass of wine!!

(not as pretty lol but it tasted delicious! Next time I will saute the tomatoes to warm them up and reduce them a bit, also the grocery store didn't have fresh looking basil so we skipped that too)
