Please read my disclosure policy. A delicious one skillet chicken dish topped with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and an incredible two ingredient balsamic sauce. A healthy, thirty-minute dinner meal! So this meal hardly needs to be explained too much; it’s one of the easiest recipes on this site! It is probably more of a Summer meal than a Spring one, but regardless of when it’s best enjoyed you need to enjoy it! It’s been one of our favorite meals on repeat the last couple of weeks. Not only is it simple to make (and clean up — hello one skillet!), but it also has such a delicious and fresh taste. The chicken gets cooked in a skillet and then topped with mozzarella, tomatoes, and fresh basil. That whole process takes about 15 minutes tops and then the sauce is another 1-2 minutes. It’s only 2 ingredients — zesty Italian dressing and balsamic vinegar. The sauce couldn’t be easier and it’s SO delicious. I’ve used a regular Zesty Italian and a fat-free version and can honestly say both are delicious with this meal. Be generous with that glaze, but only right before enjoying, otherwise it tends to get a little soggy ☺️ More Delicious Chicken Dinners: One Skillet Chicken Gnocchi Delicious ONE PAN Lemon Parmesan Chicken and Asparagus Crockpot Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Soup The BEST baked coconut chicken FOLLOW ALONG!
