Caprese Style Grilled Chicken


This is an easy summer meal to make on the grill involving simple ingredients.  The amount of ingredients will depend on how many people you are cooking for.


  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 clove of garlic, minced
  • Chicken breasts- skinless/boneless
  • Tomatoes- sliced (can be roma, vine, beef steak…whichever you prefer!!)
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese, thick slices

***I used one slice of tomato, one slice of cheese, and 1-2 basil leaves for each chicken breast.


  1. Let chicken marinade in balsamic vinegar and garlic over night or at least one hour prior to start of cooking.
  2. Marinade Tomatoes in some balsamic.
  3. Heat up grilled to medium-high heat (if you grease you grill before cooking go ahead and do that as well!!).
  4. Place chicken on the grill, cook 5-7 minutes on each side (depending on thickness of chicken).
  5. Also, place tomato slices directly onto grill and grill on each side until grill marks show.
  6. Before chicken is almost completely cooked place tomato slice, basil, and then cheese on top and let cook 1-2 minutes with grill lid down until cheese it melted.
  7. Once cheese has melted the chicken is done! Serve and Enjoy!
  8. You can drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top, or if you have time, make a balsamic reduction to drizzle over the chicken  (~1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan, boil until reduced by half- Don’t let it burn!! It will become thick like syrup!).
