  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or goat cheese
  • ½ cup balsamic syrup
  • 2 tablespoon basil
  • salt and pepper


  • Start by pounding your chicken breasts thin between two pieces of plastic wrap. Trim off any fat.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high.
  • Salt and pepper chicken breasts on both sides and place in hot skillet. Cook for about 4-6 minutes per side depending on how thick they are. You want to get some good browning on each side.
  • When chicken is cooked through drizzle with the balsamic syrup, top with the mozzarella and tomato. Turn off heat, put lid on and let the cheese melt for a minute of two.
  • Serve with more balsamic syrup if desired. Top with basil.  I like lots!
