Caprese Chicken Parmesan

Updated: Oct 4, 2021



PREP TIME: 5 minutes

COOK TIME: 25 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

SERVINGS: 2 servings


INGREDIENTS:

TOMATO SALAD:

1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1/2 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar


CHICKEN CAPRESE:

1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour

2 Large Eggs

1 cup Bread Crumbs

1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt, divided

1/2 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper

1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder

2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, butterflied and pounded to 1/2 inch thick

1/4 cup Olive Oil

8 ounces Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced into 1/4 inch slices

1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 cup Fresh Basil Leaf, torn into bite size pieces


DIRECTIONS:

1. Make the Tomato Salad: In a medium bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar and toss to coat.

2. MAKE the Caprese Chicken: Add the flour to a large plate. Beat the eggs in a large shallow bowl. On a separate large plate, mix together the bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, the pepper and garlic powder.

3. Season the chicken breasts with 1/2 teaspoon salt each. Dredge in the flour, then dip into the eggs, letting any extra drip off, then coat in the bread crumb mixture.

4. Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. When the oil is simmering, add the chicken in the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Fry the chicken, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, or until the bottom is deep golden brown. Flip the chicken and arrange the sliced mozzarella on top. Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes, or until the mozzarella is melted.

5. Pour the tomato salad on top of the chicken breasts, letting some of the tomatoes slide into the pan around the chicken. Cover again and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the tomatoes are warmed through.

6. Transfer the chicken to plates and top with the tomatoes. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and garnish with the torn basil. Enjoy!
