Delicious, easy and super good for you! The melted mozzarella on top of this dish might be my favorite. You can get fancier with it and make a balsamic glaze if you’d like. I kept it super simple and just poured some balsamic vinegar over the top and it was perfect!
- 4 chicken breasts, pounded evenly
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup pearl mozzarella balls
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped fine
Preheat oven to 400F.
Heat 1 Tbsp butter in cast iron skillet over med-high heat. While skillet is warming up, sprinkle salt and Italian seasoning on both sides of the chicken breasts (add more butter as needed).
Once the skillet is hot and butter is melted, place the chicken in the skillet and sear 3-4 minutes, flip and sear 2-3 minutes on the other side. Remove the skillet from the heat.
Add the tomatoes, garlic and any extra butter and then drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the chicken. Bake at 400F for about 20 minutes, or until internal temp comes to 165F.
Add the mozzarella cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes just until the cheese melts.
Remove the skillet from the oven. Add fresh basil and extra balsamic vinegar as desired. Enjoy!
