Introduction: Easy Chicken Caprese Recipe
Ingredients for Easy Chicken Caprese Recipe
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
¼ cup flour
1 egg, beaten
¼ cup breadcrumbs mixed with a touch of salt, pepper, and garlic powder
1 tomato, sliced
4 oz fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp dried basil leaves
2 tomatoes, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c white wine
1/2 lb cooked spaghetti
1/2 c reserved cooking liquid from the pasta
Preparation for Easy Chicken Caprese Recipe
Pound chicken just a bit, and then coat it with some olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder. I then put it in the fridge for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350; also start to boil a pot of water for the pasta.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan
Dredge chicken in flour; dip in egg, repeat to double dip it. Then coat chicken in the breadcrumbs and add to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Transfer chicken to a baking dish and put in the oven (no more than 10 min in the oven)
At this point your water should be boiling so you can cook the pasta.
Add 1/2 tbsp olive oil to the pan.
Add garlic, sauté 1 min
De-glaze pan with wine, scraping up all brown bits.
Add chopped tomatoes and let simmer. Season with salt and pepper.
Move the chopped tomatoes to the side and add the sliced tomatoes and let cook for 1 min. This is so you aren’t putting raw tomatoes on top of the chicken.
Take the chicken out of the oven, top with the sliced tomatoes, a few slices of mozzarella, half of the basil, and a touch of freshly ground black pepper (pepper is optional). Return to the oven on broil for 2 minutes.
Add reserved cooking liquid from the pasta to the tomato mixture. Let simmer.
Toss pasta in the tomato mixture.
Serve chicken over the pasta.
