Baked Caprese Chicken

Good morning to you!
The sun is shining today, so it's a good day!
Yesterday's weather was nasty. (I don't do cold/rainy weather so well.) 
I'm over here complaining about some wind and rain, while people up North are all like 

Yesterday Nelpe & I had a hair appointment (meaning I got my hair cut and colored while Nelps roamed around the salon like "hey guys, whats up?") 
I go back and forth with my bangs. It's one of those love/hate relationships. Now, the bangs are officially back! 
I go to Images Hair Salon in South Tampa, if you're looking to get your hair done right! ;) 

Anyways, on to some delicious eats!
Do you feel more put together in life when you have dinner planned for the week? I do! Especially when my cooked meals get gobbled up by the family! 
This delicious Baked Caprese chicken was a winner on Monday night. I'm a fan of all things caprese. Caprese sandwiches are on the top of my favorite things list. If you're in the same boat as me, give this Caprese Chicken a try!

Baked Caprese Chicken with Balsamic Glaze

What you’ll need:
2 chicken breasts, sliced horizontally to create 4 thin filets
1 egg

¾ cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. FlavorGod Everything Seasoning or any Italian Seasoning
½ lb. fresh Mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 slices
1 large tomato, sliced
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze
Fresh or dried basil leaves (I only had dried tonight so that’s what I used)
Salt & Pepper

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl, create an egg wash by scrambling an egg and tbsp. of water together with a fork.
In another small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and seasoning.
Take each chicken filet and dip first into egg wash, then into breadcrumbs, making sure it is completely covered.
Place on a baking sheet lined with foil & sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
Bake chicken in oven for 20 minutes or until fully cooked.
(This is when you can create a balsamic glaze if wanted)
Take chicken out of oven and top each filet with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
Put back in over for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Take out of oven and top with sliced tomato, balsamic, and basil.



  1. YUM! Sounds tasty! (And the bangs look cute, too!)

  2. That looks delicious! I love everything Caprese too, but I have a hard time not eating all the mozarella as I am making it. Haha.

  3. This looks awesome! I'm making it tonight... wish me luck because I'm not a good cook at all lol.

  4. YUM!!! I think I saw this dinner on your IG? Looks delish! Love the bangs! I miss bangs, but they make my forehead break out which makes me sad, lol

    1. Yes, I wear them pinned back a lot to try and avoid the forehead break outs! lol
