Step 1

If the chicken breasts are thick, flatten them slightly with a meat mallet. It will help them to cook more quickly and evenly.

Step 2

Season one side of the chicken with salt, pepper, and half of the Italian seasoning.

Step 3

In a large pan, heat up olive oil and add the chicken, seasoned side down, and cook for 8-10 minutes. (Put a lid on while cooking so the meat doesn’t cook dry.)

Step 4

Season another side of chicken with salt, pepper, and remaining Italian Seasoning while the first side is cooking.

Step 5

Flip the chicken and cook for another 8-10 minutes depending on the size of the chicken. Chicken is done when the internal temperature is 170°. Remove the chicken and set it aside.

Step 6

In the same pan, cook the garlic for about 30 seconds then add the balsamic vinegar, crushed tomatoes, and fresh basil. Mix until well incorporated and cook for about 3 minutes.

Step 7

Add the chicken back to the pan on top of the sauce.

Step 8

Top each chicken breast with a slice of Mozzarella cheese and cover with a lid for about 1 minute until the cheese is melted.
