  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Seasoned salt + pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons chicken seasoning such as Mrs. Dash's chicken seasoning
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 3-4 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • Handful of fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons prepared zesty Italian dressing
  • Optional: fresh parmesan cheese


  • Trim the fat from 2-3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • Butterfly (slice in half) the chicken breasts to give them a uniform thickness so they will cook evenly.
  • Fill up a bowl with the flour and about 1/2 teaspoon each of seasoned salt and pepper. Dredge the breasts in the flour mixture until evenly covered in flour.
  • Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the butter or olive oil.
  • When the butter is completely melted (or the oil sizzling), place the chicken breasts in the skillet.
  • Reduce the heat to just above medium and cook for 4 minutes.
  • Evenly sprinkle (on the breasts) 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon chicken seasoning.
  • Flip the chicken and sprinkle the remaining Italian seasoning and chicken seasoning on the chicken.
  • Cook for another 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through (the chicken should register 165 degrees with a meat thermometer).
  • Meanwhile, slice the roma tomato into thin slices. Slice the mozzarella cheese into thin slices, and slice the fresh basil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and zesty Italian dressing.
  • Remove the cooked chicken and top with the cheese, tomatoes, and basil.
  • Sprinkle on some salt and pepper if desired and some parmesan cheese if desired (optional).
  • Pour the balsamic mixture over the chicken right before serving.
