Recipe Notes

  • You can cook the chicken on an indoor or outdoor grill. If you don't have either, simply cook them in a skillet.
  • You could use white or dark chicken meat for this recipe.
  • Add some crushed red pepper flakes for a little spice.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a small bowl, combine onion, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Put the tomatoes into a large bowl. Add the garlic, basil, balsamic/olive oil/onion mixture and an additional 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Set aside and let sit 10 minutes or more (as long as overnight).
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill to medium-high. (If you don’t have a grill, use a grill pan or skillet.) Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Grill chicken 2 minutes per side or until cooked through. 
  4. Put the chicken on a plate and top with tomato mixture and cheese. Drizzle with additional balsamic, if desired.
