Grilled Balsamic Bruschetta Chicken

I love to try anything with balsamic vinegar. This was good!! Got this recipe courtesy of Picky Palate. Thanks!


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

8 slices of mozzarella cheese

4 Roma tomatoes- seeded and diced

8 fresh basil leaves- rolled and thinly sliced

3 cloves fresh garlic- minced

Pinch of salt

1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Preheat grill over medium (recipe calls to do this over the stove but I did it over the outside grill). Combine the balsamic and olive oil in a bowl. Season both sides of the chicken the salt and place on grill. Brush top sides of chicken with balsamic mixture. Cook 4-5 minutes and flip chicken. Brush with additional balsamic and cook for 4-5 minutes or until done. During the last 2 minutes of grilling- place 2 slices of cheese over top of chicken and melt.

In a large bowl combines the tomatoes, basil, garlic and balsamic vinegar. Toss gently to combine. Serve over chicken.
