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.

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

  1. 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.
  2. Quarter the bocconcini and transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining marinade and the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  3. 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.
