caprese stuffed chicken

At least once a day I reminisce about my trip to Italy 2 years ago. Yes, it was just that magical. Every day was filled with gelato and Tuscan wine. And most days included a simple, yet mindblowing, Margherita pizza. I was truly living THE dream.

In Spain, I recently tried pan con tomate, bread with tomato. As underwhelming as it sounds, it was one of my favorite things I ate on the entire trip! It’s a piece of toast that’s rubbed with garlic and anchovy EVOO and then soaked in tomato puree. Nothing beats the flavor of a summertime, Meditteranean tomato. While I was in Madrid, I also got to try out a mozzarella booth at the market. BIG fan of basing an entire meal off of cheese.IMG_9799

And so I did just that once I got back to the states! I was already having creamy mozzarella and juicy tomato withdrawals in a matter of days. Chicken breast was on an amazing sale at Lucky’s and the cafe I work at has a huge herb garden with an overflowing basil plant. This dinner idea just kinda fell into my lap!

Sometimes I personally get weird with tomatoes’ texture. I found that cutting out the more slimy and seedy part of the tomato helps!

This chicken goes great with angel hair spaghetti, garlic sauteed asparagus, roasted mushrooms, a salad kit, or buttered toast.
