I met up with some old friends from high school and his parents. Going to school in Southern Oregon, you don’t meet up with high school friends very often in the Midwest. My 16 y.o. Daughter and I drove over to Omaha and had lunch with the old gang.
I had the most amazing lunch, which I decided to recreate for dinner.
2 large chicken breasts (butterflied)
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 Roma tomatoes
3-4 Tbsp olive oil
Cut butterflied chicken breasts in half, then in half again. Place in gallon size bag and seal. Bang the crap out of it with a rolling pin or the like.
Add 2T. Olive oil in grill pan and heat pan to medium heat. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken pieces, then place in heated pan.
Mince tomatoes into itsy bitsy pieces and cut basil into small pieces or tear to avoid browning. Add 1T. Olive oil and 1T. Balsamic vinegar. Mix.
Finish cooking chicken through, then place thick slice of fresh mozzarella on each chicken piece. If pan is able, place in oven quickly on broil until cheese softens, not completely melts. Remove pan from oven. Plate each piece and add tomato/basil mix.
Eating with focaccia is highly recommend and also easy to make.
