    Chicken Caprese ... Mama Mia It Sure Tastes Great !

    Post by Jan1 on Wed Jun 17 2015, 20:07


    Turn that summertime classic, Caprese salad, into a delicious chicken dinner. It’s quick and easy, and captures all the great flavors of fresh summer tomatoes and basil. This Caprese chicken recipe is surely destined to become a family favourite.

    Ingredients:
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 5 or 6 thighs)
    Salt and pepper
    6 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced into 5 or 6 slices
    1 medium tomato, sliced into 5 or 6 slices (as many as you have thighs)
    1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

    Preparation:
    Preheat oven to 375F.
    In a large skillet / frying pan heat oil until over medium heat until shimmering. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper and add in a single layer to pan. Sear on the first side until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes, then sear on the second side another 2 to 3 minutes.

    Arrange chicken in a single layer in a medium casserole dish or glass baking pan. Top each chicken thigh with a slice of fresh mozzarella, then top each with a slice of tomato.

    Bake in oven for 25 to 28 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling and chicken is cooked through. Turn on broiler / grill  for 2 or 3 min to brown the top of the cheese.


    Remove from oven and sprinkle with fresh basil.

    Hi Sue, thanks for the kind words re the Caprese Chicken recipe idea. How about trying this one, it's one of our favourites.

    Leek, Chicken and Cheddar Bake


    Easy to make and ready in half an hour, this leek, chicken and Cheddar bake recipe is the perfect midweek bake for the family. This delicious recipe serves 4 people and will take about 35 mins to rustle up. Packed with plenty of flavour, thanks to the buttery Cheddar cheese sauce and tangy leeks. This recipe uses chicken breasts but you could use other cuts of chicken too including thigh or wings to cut the cost down.

    Ingredients:
    1tbsp oil
    4 chicken breasts, diced
    2 leeks, washed and sliced
    25g butter
    150ml double cream
    150ml full fat milk
    125g Cheddar cheese, grated

    Method:
    Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and fry the chicken for 5 mins. Add the leeks and fry for 10 mins, covered.
    Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan (low heat) and stir in the cream. Cook for about 1 min. Off the heat, gradually whisk in the milk then bring to the boil, keep stirring. Season and add half the cheese and stir until melted.

    Place the chicken in a heatproof serving dish and pour over the cheese sauce. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and place under a preheated grill for 2-3 mins until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.

    Recipe adapted from original idea here http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/299273/Chicken--leek-and-Cheddar-bake

    Such an easy bake recipe, hope you enjoy it !

    All the best Jan
