Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 8-ounce package mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 thick slices
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • balsamic glaze
  • basil leaves torn or chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400º F.
  • Season chicken breasts on both sides with the salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil into a medium skillet set over medium heat. Arrange chicken breasts in the skillet. Brown the chicken on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Place the skillet into the preheated oven and bake until juices run clear when pricked with a knife and the internal temperature registers 165º F when checked with an internal thermometer, about 20 minutes.
  • Arrange the cheese on top of the chicken breasts and top with the cherry tomato halves and return to the oven until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top with basil glaze and basil leaves for serving. Salt and pepper to taste.
