Margherita Grilled Chicken with Balsamic Glaze
Everything you love about classic margherita pizza is piled on top of this juicy margherita grilled chicken and it's all drizzled with a killer balsamic glaze!
Servings 4 servings
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon agave syrup
- 4 medium chicken breasts, pounded to 1-in thickness (about 1-1/2 lbs)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
- 8 slices roma tomatoes (about 3 tomatoes)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
In a small saucepan, bring balsamic and agave to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer at low heat until reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. Keep warm and set aside.
Rub chicken breasts on both sides with olive oil and season both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic. Grill chicken over medium-high heat, flipping once until chicken registers 165F.
Top each chicken breast with mozzarella, 2 tomato slices each, and fresh basil on top. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper. Broil chicken breasts under high heat 2-3 minutes or until cheese is a bubbly golden brown. Serve chicken warm with balsamic glaze drizzled on top and enjoy!
