Caprese Stuffed Balsamic Chicken


Ingredients:

  1. 4 (200-gram | 7-ounce) chicken breasts
  2. Salt and pepper , to season
  3. 1 teaspoon each of dried oregano and dried basil
  4. 2 roma tomatoes , sliced thinly
  5. 1/4 cup sun dried tomato strips in oil
  6. 4 mozzarella cheese slices (or cheese of choice)
  7. 12 basil leaves , divided
  8. 4 cloves garlic , minced or finely chopped
  9. 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  10. 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 180°C | 350°F. Cut a pocket about 3/4 quarter of the way through on the thickest side of each breast, being careful not to cut all the way.
  • Season chicken with salt, pepper, and dried herbs. Pour 1 teaspoon of sun dried tomato oil over each breast, rubbing some of the seasoning inside the pockets.
  • Fill each with 2 slices fresh tomato, 2 teaspoons sun dried tomato strips, one slice mozzarella cheese and basil leaves.
  • Seal with 3-4 toothpicks diagonally to keep the filling inside while cooking.
  • Heat 2 teaspoons of sun dried tomato oil (or olive oil) in a skillet or non stick pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry for 2 minutes on each side until golden.
  • While the chicken is cooking, mix together the garlic, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in a small jug. Pour the mixture into the pan around the chicken; bring to a simmer while stirring occasionally, until the glaze has slightly thickened (about 2-3 minutes).
