serves 4

four good sized chicken breasts
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
couple good glugs of olive oil
salt and pepper
eight slices of fresh mozzarella
one tomato sliced
four large basil leaves
more balsamic to drizzle

Place chicken breasts in plastic bag with vinegar and olive oil. Close bag and massage into the chicken. Marinate for 30 minutes or up to overnight. 

Heat grill or grill pan. Remove chicken from marinade, season generously with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook, turning once until cooked through. About 10-15 minutes. 

Place a couple of slices of mozzarella on each chicken breast for the last five minutes of grilling.

Serve warm or room temperature (great to make ahead for a party).
