It is summer and the vines are starting to show those ripe red tomatoes, and my herb garden is starting to really fill out. I love fresh. And I love the fresh flavors of summer. Especially when you combine them with fresh cheeses and fresh breads.
You guys, one of my favorite snacks is traditional caprese. There is something about fresh mozzarella that I can not get enough of. Especially Stella® Fresh Mozzarella. It is amazing cheese! It has a rich history, dating back to 1923. It has a soft texture and subtle flavor. It is creamy, and is the perfect way to enhance all kinds of dishes, from salads, to sandwiches, and everything in between. And it tastes as fresh as those tomatoes! Honestly, it is one of my favorite foods to keep on hand. You can find it in an 8 ounce ball or 16 ounce log.
I went ahead and got a ball, and then I had to go and get the log too because I ate half of it before I even started this recipe, and didn’t have enough left to finish the recipe off. Okay, so I am obsessed with all things caprese, so I decided to make this amazing balsamic chicken topped with a caprese. And Holy Moly!!!! It was seriously the yummiest chicken dish, and one of the easiest things to make.
You cook it in a skillet first, then finish it in the oven. You get the creaminess of the mozzarella combined with the fresh acid from the tomato, and the fragrance of the basil, all with the yummy tangy, richness of the balsamic. I was slurping up the pan juices.
