ONE-PAN CHERRY TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA CHICKEN



This is a mediterranean dish that is easy to make. The cherry tomatoes are sweet with a little  bite, makes the chicken oh so tasty

What you need:
a large drizzle of olive oil (about 1.5-2 tablespoons)
4 cloves garlic, chopped finely
2 chicken breasts(if thick slice thin)
1 package fresh cherry tomatoes sliced in half
a drizzle of balsamic vinegar(easy)
a handful of fresh basil
salt and pepper
1 mozzarella ball, sliced  to serve (I shredded mine)


How to make it:
Drizzle the oil into a frying pan/skillet, then heat it up (on a medium heat). Cook the chicken together with the garlic for about 2 minutes on each side.
Pour the cherry tomatoes into the pan with the balsamic vinegar, most of the basil, and plenty of salt and pepper. Let simmer for about 5 minutes, then turn the chicken over and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Check that the chicken is cooked all the way through, then top each piece with the mozzarella slices. Pop the pan under the broiler/grill until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
Divide the sauce between two plates, then top with the chicken and garnish with the rest of the basil. Serve with the vegetables and bread
Notes
You can add a bit of parmesan over the mozzarella before broiling/grilling.
