Grilled and Stuffed Chicken Caprese

Grilled and Stuffed Chicken Caprese by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Even though it’s still quite chilly here, I want to think it’s spring. Maybe it’s all the sunshine, and the warm afternoons we have in winter here in Florida. I haven’t ventured outside to use my charcoal grill yet, but my indoor little counter-top Cuisinart griddler sure has been getting alot of use. We’ve been grilling all sorts of chicken breasts recipes like this one.

This is a super simple chicken caprese. I just stuffed the chicken with the mozzarella, tomato and basil instead of melting it down on top. I took a boneless skinless chicken breast, cut it lengthwise down the middle so I had two thin pieces of chicken breasts, and then pounded them flat with my heavy cast  iron skillet.

Then after seasoning my chicken breasts, I stuffed them with mozzarella, roma tomatoes and basil. I rolled them up and secured them with a toothpick. Then I grilled them until they were done.

These are wonderful just over some fresh lettuce. You can top with balsamic vinegar and olive oil of you like, but it’s also good without it.

I added this along with 4 more great grilled chicken recipes you can find here on the Best Grilled Chicken Recipes page at Tablespoon.com.
