Ok, false advertising...this is not really "caprese" chicken, as I used red peppers instead of tomatoes...but it looks very caprese-like. And it tastes so good, so whatever I'm calling it, just try it.
1 lb. Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless; 3-4 breasts)
2 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1/2 Red Pepper, Cut into Strips
4 Basil Leaves
4 oz. Fresh Mozzarella, cut into 3-4 slices (one per chicken breast)
1. Marinade chicken breasts in balsamic vinegar, 2 Tbsp. of the olive oil, and the garlic for 2-3 hours.
2. Grill chicken breasts, bake, or sautee on stovetop until cooked through (I baked at 350 for about 15-20 min).
3. While chicken is cooking, heat remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil in skillet. Add red pepper strips and saute for 5-7 minutes, or until soft and cooked thoroughly.
4. Place one chicken breast on a plate. Top with a slice of Mozzarella, then basil leaf, then 3-4 red pepper strips.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
