Mamma Mia! It’s time for another Dantastic Italian inspired dish with our fresh caprese chicken. This is kinda like our chicken cordon bleu where you’re butterflying the chicken and then rolling up the ingredients in it before baking. This is such a fun dish, and really screams to Summer flavor as we slowly inch into Fall. We recommend serving up caprese chicken with our Tiktok famous parmesan crusted potatoes and fried portabella mushrooms.
Caprese is just a simple Italian salad made up of 4 ingredients: Fresh mozzarella, a fresh tomato, some basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil. It's a masterclass in flavor composition with creamy mozzarella mixing with the tomato’s light acidity and the sweet relief of basil tossed with that smooth olive oil. The most important part about caprese chicken, and really just caprese in general, is that everything has to be fresh. A new ball of mozzarella with basil and plump ripe tomato straight from the garden.
