Easy Caprese Chicken Mozzarella

This is a great dinner idea for the busy family, and let’s admit it, we are all pretty busy these days. The recipe only takes about 20 minutes start to finish. Using prepared marinara sauce helps cut the preparation time as does cooking it all on the stove-top in a single skillet. While the chicken is sautéing, you can prepare a vegetable or other side.  Give this recipe a try.

Here is what you will need to prepare your caprese chicken mozzarella

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 tablespoon olive oil

2-3 teaspoons garlic herb seasoning blend

2 tablespoons olive oil for sautéing

1 cup marinara sauce (low carb commercially prepared)

4 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Basil and/or Parsley for garnish

To Prepare Your Caprese Chicken Mozzarella

1) Heat a skillet over medium high heat.

2) Rub the olive oil over the chicken breast and season them with the garlic herb seasoning blend. Sprinkle it on and pat it in.

3) Pour enough olive oil in the skillet to saute the chicken. Place the chicken in the pan and cook for 5 minutes (8 minutes if they are huge), then flip and cook another 5-8 minutes. NOTE: if the chicken is cold, straight from the fridge, it may take a minute or two longer that the time indicated.

4) Spoon 1/4 cup of sauce over each of the pieces of chicken and place 1 ounce of sliced fresh mozzarella cheese on top. Cover with a piece of foil or a lid and cook for 1-2 minutes on low until the cheese melts.

5) Serve or place under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the cheese.

6) Garnish and serve.
