Another Caprese Chicken Recipe


It seems as though I'm hooked on anything caprese and have been making a lot of similar dishes lately. This meal was no exception :) It's really easy and quite tasty!

Caprese Chicken with Roasted Artichokes
Ingredients  - I adapted the recipe from here, but this makes enough for 4 people easily.
  • 1 cup of fresh basil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 box of grape tomatoes sliced
  • 1/2 medium ball of mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 2 artichokes, halved
  • 1/3 cup romano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Directions
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Pound chicken with a mallet to flatten it. Boil a medium pot of water.
  2. When the water comes to a boil, place the artichokes in the pot. Cook for about 15 minutes.
  3. In either a blender or a bowl (with an immersion blender - this is what I did as I was too lazy to get the blender out), add basil, garlic, and olive oil. Puree the mixture.
  4. Place the slice mozzarella on chicken breasts (about 3-4 pieces)
  5. Pour the basil mixture over the chicken/mozzarella. Cover each breast with a handful of sliced tomatoes.
  6. Place the artichokes (hearts up) on a pan. Drizzle with olive oil and cheese.
  7. Bake chicken for about 20-25 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, add the artichokes and bake until cheese is melted.
