This is a simple dish. It is full of fresh flavors. Chicken Caprese is a breaded chicken breast topped with cheese and a baby green salad. This is the way I make it for my family. I breaded my chicken with seasoned Panko crumbs. I mixed my tomato mixture with garlic, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar and oil. I also added shavings of Parmesan cheese to the top. I hope you all enjoy it. We absolutely love this dish in my family.
