Author: Jen Nikolaus
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4-6 servings
- 2 lbs. chicken breasts (about 5-6 pieces)
- salt and pepper
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2-3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 cup low sodium-chicken broth
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. Truvia Brown Sugar Blend (or about 6 Tbsp. brown sugar)
- sliced tomato
- sliced mozzarella
- fresh basil
- In between two pieces of plastic wrap, pound chicken breasts to ½" thick. (Mine were large, so I cut them in half). Salt and pepper both sides.
- Heat oil in saucepan on medium-high. Brown chicken on both sides. Reduce heat to medium-low and add garlic.
- Cook until garlic is tender, being careful not to burn it. Add broth, balsamic and Truvia. Turn heat up to medium-high and simmer for 10-12 minutes, covered until chicken is cooked through.
- Preheat broiler. Line baking sheet with parchment. Place each chicken piece on baking sheet. Place a sprig of basil on top of each breast then cover with a slice of mozzarella.
- Broil until cheese is slightly melted. Add tomato slice on top. Heat again until tomato is warm and cheese is melted. Serve as is or with a little extra sauce from the pan drizzled on top. Enjoy!
