Caprese Chicken

You all know mine and John’s love for Caprese. Whether it’s Roasted Red Pepper Caprese Grilled Cheese for lunch or having Caprese Baked Eggs for breakfast or a twist on it making the classic Caprese Salad with my Tomatoes Napoleons . “Insalata Caprese” is a simple salad made of sliced mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, olive oil and salt. So when I found these amazing wine barrel staves at Williams Sonoma I knew they would pair perfectly with a caprese salad on top of chicken!

*Cooks Note: If you are not a griller (like myself) or if you are using an indoor grill pan. Marinate the chicken in 1/4 c. red wine + 1/4 c. olive oil for 2 hours. Then grill as directed above or you can bake the chicken wrapped in aluminum foil at 450 degrees for 1 hour. Depending on how thick the chicken breast is you might have to cook a little longer. Then proceed to #2 above.

And I have to make it again John said this is one of his top favorite chicken recipes. (His other is Caprese Chicken). […]
