Recipe for Baked Caprese Chicken

Bailey and I went to The Girls U Pick yesterday, read my post here.  The weather has not been cold enough for the Strawberries to be ready yet.  They had tomatoes and string beans ready to pick.  We had a blast.  I wanted to make sure that we enjoyed all the tomatoes we picked so I found this recipe on and adapted it to include my favorite balsamic glaze.  I was highly recommend this meal.  It was fun and easy to make and it was the most colorful dish we have made recently, Baked Caprese Chicken.

  1. I like this idea a lot. I bet you can simplify it even more with shredded mozzarella cheese (so you don’t have to take the time to thinly slice). I’m going to have to try this out one day. Once I find some balsamic glaze.
