Chicken Caprese Salad Recipe

Bocconcini (mini mozzarella balls) are often sold floating in herbed olive oil. That tasty oil is essential to this three-ingredient recipe because it adds so much flavor to both the chicken marinade and the dressing.

Recipe Time

Total: 30 Minutes

Ingredients

1/2 pound spicy marinated bocconcini (mozzarella balls), plus the oil from the container
4 chicken breast halves, skinless, boneless, pounded 1/2 inch thick
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 pint heirloom cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
Olive oil, for grilling

Preparation

Pick the bocconcini out of the marinade. Transfer half of the marinade to a medium baking dish. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or refrigerate for 4 hours.

Quarter the bocconcini and transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining marinade and the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and oil the grate. Grill the chicken over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and add to the bocconcini. Toss and serve.
