Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lb/900 g)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 tomatoes
  • 8 mozzarella cheese
  • 8 basil leaves

Method

With sharp knife held horizontally, cut each chicken breast in half to make 2 filets. Between plastic wrap, flatten to even thickness if necessary.

In bowl, whisk together oil, garlic, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper; remove one-quarter and set aside.

Add chicken to remaining oil mixture, turning to coat; let stand for 10 minutes.

Discarding marinade, place chicken and tomato on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill for 4 minutes. Turn chicken and tomato. Top chicken with mozzarella; cook until chicken is no longer pink inside and tomato is softened and slightly charred, about 2 minutes.

To serve, top each chicken breast with tomato; drizzle with reserved oil mixture. Top with basil leaf.
