Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Pour 1/4 cup dressing into a small bowl.

  • Arrange chicken breasts evenly in the center of a grill pan. Brush both sides of the chicken breasts with dressing; season with salt and pepper.

  • Pour remaining 1/4 cup dressing into a mixing bowl. Add tomatoes and basil. Toss to coat evenly with the dressing.

  • Spread the tomato mixture evenly around chicken in a single layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove pan from oven and top chicken with fresh mozzarella; return pan to oven.

  • Continue baking until mozzarella cheese is golden brown and bubbly and chicken is fully cooked, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Panasonic CIO Directions:

Bake in the Panasonic Induction Oven using Autocook with the poultry and veggie combination setting for approximately 15 minutes. Take out the oven/grill pan and top chicken with the fresh mozzarella cheese and return to the oven. Continue baking for approximately 10 minutes until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.

Mercy this is delicious!!! I made my own oil and vinegar dressing using olive oil and balsamic glaze and the use of simple ingredients in this flavorful dish is PERFECTION! It will be a family favorite--my 14yr old loved it and told me I should 'cook like this all the time.' Bravo--thanks for a wonderful recipe. Read More

Omg!! This is amazing! I used my own salad dressing with a balsamic vinegar. It smelled so good cooking that the guy who was delivering Chinese food next door peeked in my screen door and asked what I was cooking! Lol! Read More

Used a toaster oven and set a thermometer in the chicken as to not overcook. Loved it and very easy! Read More

I really like the caprese flavors and ease of preparation of this dish! Cooking in the Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven definitely makes this an even easier dish. If I were to make this again I believe I would use strips of chicken to speed up cooking a little as it definitely took more than 15 minutes to cook. I would also add the basil later in the cooking process as it did overcook fairly significantly- I would probably add the mozzarella a little before the chicken was cooked through as well to prevent overcooking while the cheese is melting. Overall the flavors are great and this one is worth playing around with! Read More

This was an awesome light meal for summer. I used thin sliced chicken breast so I had about 6. I had red wine vinegar and oil dressing which I think added to the flavor. It would be good with a balsamic vinegar and oil dressing too. I also baked it in a 9x13 glass dish. I roasted broccoli to serve with it. Perfect! Read More
