Caprese Grilled Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes

What is it about tomato, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil that just makes everything taste amazing? Whoever invented the caprese salad is a genius!

I added fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced tomatoes, and a chopped fresh basil on top of a piece of chicken breast grilled in a Valencia Pro Ceramic Non-Stick Grill Pan, 11-Inch! Then I topped it with a little balsamic reduction (just a fancy word for a glaze), and the combination was incredible! Caprese Grilled Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes is definitely a dish you don't want to miss!

Herb Roasted Potatoes

don't forget about the herb roasted potatoes!

Let's not forget about the potatoes! They're so simple to make. They only require a few ingredients - salt and pepper, herbs de provence, tomatoes, and olive oil!

Like the chicken, I sautéed this on top of the stove and then finished the potatoes in the oven. It's super simple, super flavorful, and so fun to enjoy after it's all done. These herb roasted potatoes with the caprese grilled chicken - a match made in heaven!

let's cook! How do you make Caprese Grilled Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes?

Let's cook these Caprese Grilled Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes! So, I start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, season the chicken with smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Sprinkle a little olive oil in the grill pan and heat the pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and sear on both sides for about 4-5 minutes on each side.

Squeeze juice from one lemon on top and then add chicken broth and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

Halve the creamer potatoes and add Herbs de Provence and salt and pepper. Add a little olive oil to a fry pan over medium heat. Saute the potatoes, cut side down (this makes them extra crispy), for about 5-7 minutes and then add in the grape tomatoes. Add to the oven and cook for 15 minutes, until fork tender, but not mushy. Don't worry, these Caprese Grilled Chicken with Herb Roasted Potatoes are almost finished!

For the balsamic glaze, it's super simple. What I did was I added balsamic vinegar to a small sauce pan and added in brown sugar. Give that a quick stir and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, until it becomes kind of like a syrup.

Remove the chicken from the oven after 15 minutes and then add sliced mozzarella on top, about 3-4 thin slices. Add back into the oven for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Then add the tomatoes and chopped basil on top! Drizzle a little balsamic glaze on top... now, you're done! Time to eat!
