Grilled Chicken Caprese Recipe - so easy to make and so fresh and flavorful!
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- ¼ cup red wine
- 1 tablespoon Maple syrup (or honey)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- pinch of salt
- 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- grilling spray
- 10.5 ounces cherry tomatoes halved
- 4 oz mozzarella ball, cut into ½ inch slices
- Fresh basil leaves sliced thin or torn
Add olive oil and minced garlic to a saucepan over medium heat and cook for one minute.
Pour vinegar, red wine, and maple syrup into a saucepan then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium then simmer until it has thickened- about 10-12 minutes. Set aside.
Heat your grill up to high heat. Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper, and spray with grilling/cooking spray. Turn the grill down to medium-high heat and cook with lid closed for 6 minutes on the first side and 4 minutes on the second side.
Add one slice of fresh Mozzarella to each piece of chicken and continue to grill with the lid closed for 2 more minutes or until temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees. (The cheese should melt and cover the chicken, but watch closely to make sure it doesn't melt too much and slide off.) Remove chicken from the grill and allow to rest 5 minutes.
- Add cherry tomatoes to the balsamic sauce and fold together.
Place chicken on each plate, top with the tomato and balsamic sauce, and sprinkle with lots of torn or sliced basil leaves.
