Here's what you'll need:
grilled or baked chicken breasts
mozzarella cheese (I used one snack package for each chicken breast- see pic below)
1 roma tomato per chicken breast, diced
Here's what I did:
I drizzled my chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkled Italian seasoning on both sides of the chicken breasts. Then, I baked the chicken covered in foil in a 350 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. Bake until the juices run clear. Chicken should have a minimum cooking temperature of 165 degrees, so invest in a cooking thermometer if need it to check the temperature. I usually bake quite a few chicken breasts in advance, then put them in food saver bags and freeze them for future use. That's what I used tonight- a package that was pre-made from the freezer. The food saver bag keeps the chicken fresh and moist. It makes the dinner come together in a snap.
Put the chicken breast on a microwave safe plate and top it with the mozzarella balls. You could also use shredded mozzarella cheese. Heat until cheese is melty- yes, I am declaring that "melty" is a word.
Top with diced tomatoes.
It's that easy and makes a boring chicken breast a little more interesting.
