  • 4 small chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar glaze + more for drizzling
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Season each side of the chicken breast with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter and when sizzling, add the chicken and cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan, set aside.
  4. Add the chicken broth to the skillet to deglaze the pan. Scrape up all the yummy bits in the bottom of the skillet and bring the broth to a simmer. Allow it to cook 5-6 minutes until it has reduced by half. Stir in the balsamic glaze and remaining tablespoon of butter.
  5. Add the chicken back to the skillet, turn so each side is coated in the balsamic glaze. Add the tomatoes to the skillet and top the chicken with the mozzarella.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F. Top with basil and balsamic glaze to taste.
