4 5-7 oz chicken breasts pounded to even thickness

2 tsp italian seasoning

2 tsp sea or kosher salt

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

8 oz fresh mozzarella sliced into 8 even pieces

2 vine ripened tomatoes sliced into 1/2″ slices

Prepare the chicken:

Place one chicken breast onto a sheet of parchment paper.

Fold the paper over the chicken.

Using a rolling pin, pound the chicken breast to even thickness of a little less than 1″. 

Set aside and repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.

Combine the italian seasoning, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir to combine.

Top each chicken breast with 2 slices fresh mozzarella. 

Continue grilling 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the internal temperature reads 165°F. 

Place the chicken breasts onto a platter or individual plates. 

Top each chicken breast with 2-3 slices of fresh tomatoes, then sprinkle with fresh basil and additional salt and pepper to taste.

 ust before serving, drizzle with aged balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction.
