Ingredients:
  • 2kg Chicken breast
  • 4 Slices fresh mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Basil Pesto
  • 2 cup Basil leaves
  • 1 cup Pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup Freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2Cloves of garlic
  • 1/3 cup Olive oil
Tomato Bruschetta
  • 10 oz Cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered if large
  • 2-3Cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 4 leaves Fresh basil, cut into thin strips
Method:
  1. Heat oven to 400°F with a rack in the middle position. Alternatively heat your outside charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Place all ingredients for the pesto into a small food processor and pulse until combined. Feel free to make it as smooth as you'd like. Also feel free to add more olive oil a little at a time as necessary. Set pesto aside**
  3. In a small bowl, toss together all ingredients for the tomato bruschetta. Set aside to let the flavors mingle.
  4. Pat the chicken dry & rub with olive oil & sprinkle with salt, pepper.
  5. For baking the chicken in the oven: Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish & bake until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165° F. About 20-30 minutes depending on the size of your chicken breast. When the chicken is almost done baking, place a slice of fresh mozzarella on each breast. Remove from oven when it is slightly melted.
  6. For grilled chicken: Place the chicken on the grill & cook until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165° F. When the chicken is almost done being grilled, place a slice of fresh mozzarella on each breast. Remove from the grill when it is slightly melted.
  7. Top the mozzarella slices with a scoop of pesto & a scoop of bruschetta. Serve immediately.
