5) Skillet Chicken Caprese                                                                           (5 of 6)



  • 1½ tsp. herbes de provence
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 3 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 thick slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 c. cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ c. basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 2 tbsp. quality aged balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small prep bowl, combine herbes de provence, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Season the chicken breasts on both sides.
  3. Set a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  4. Place skillet into preheated oven and bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 20-22 minutes. Remove from the oven and top the chicken breasts with cheese, return to oven and broil 2-3 minutes or until melty. Remove and top with tomatoes and basil, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.
