Caprese Chicken

A beautiful reminder of the colors of the Italian flag, this classic and simple dish is the perfect menu item for the busy workday meal.

Caprese salad is hands down my favorite salad, and though traditionally served cold, this melted version atop a healthy portion of grilled chicken is one of my go-to recipes for a busy night. The flavors are clean, the ingredients are simple and easy to find, and the freshness will take you to the Mediterranean in one, delicious bite!
