Baked Chicken Caprese

I have been craving chicken caprese for such a long time now, but last night, I finally made it! I usually crave some type of Mediterranean food during the week, but since I haven’t really made anything like that recently, last night was the perfect opportunity.

Chicken caprese is a quick and easy dish to make – especially if you have that feeling of wanting to cook, but also not really wanting to cook

Usually, I would love to serve it with some angel hair or spaghetti, but since the hubby and I are trying to cut down on carbs, we chose to not add it.

Ingredients :

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 tomato
  • fresh mozzarella
  • couple leaves of fresh basil

Directions :

  1.  Preheat oven to 400°
  2.  Coat chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder and some oregano — I just used a little of each, but use your discretion for whatever you like
  3.  Bake, uncovered for about 20 – 25 minutes or until chicken is tender
  4.  Put two slices of fresh mozzarella on each chicken breast and then two slices of tomato on each as well
  5.  Broil for about 8 – 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly
  6.  Serve with freshly chopped basil
