*Traditional balsamic vinegar is glossy, viscous, and dark brown, though it captures light beautifully. It moves like syrup, and has a velvety texture on the tongue. Our feature recipe, Caprese Chicken, calls for 2 year old balsamic which would make a great gift paired with our Well Seasoned Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. Pick some up in store today!
Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp Well Seasoned extra-virgin olive oil*
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • kosher salt & freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ c. 2 year old balsamic vinegar*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp shredded fresh basil
  • 4 slices mozzarella
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until golden and cooked through, 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add balsamic vinegar to skillet to deglaze, then add garlic and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. Add tomatoes and season with salt. Let simmer until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in basil. Return chicken to skillet and nestle in tomatoes. Top with a slice of mozzarella and cover with lid to melt cheese. Spoon tomatoes over chicken and serve.
