A couple minor adjustments. Thin sliced the chicken. Put the basil shreds on the chicken and “beat” it in with a kitchen mallet. Soaked my tomato slices in balsamic. Used the broiler to brown the mozzarella. Then served on ciabatta with a yoghurt garlic spread. No asparagus.

I got so many oohs & aahs and "this looks like a fancy french restaurant" lol. Was super easy and I'm not kidding i kept hearing "mmm" throughout dinner from everyone! I did make two changes: added honey to the reduction and used cabbage leaves tossed in basil paste in place of basil leaves.

It was quite yummy, guess I put too much mozza because it ran all over the chicken but was ooey and gooey. I subbed garlic powder for actual garlic, so it was pretty flavourful. Only made the caprese chicken part, not the asparagus.

Recipe turned out great. I definitely will make it again. I cooked the chicken a little longer than recipe though. Even sent the instructions straight to my smart range.

Chicken was tender and you can’t go wrong with basil, tomato, and mozzarella.

Really extra yummy. Could have done with a splash of citrus so next time I’m going to try with a little lemon!

I pounded the chicken first and this recipe turned out quite moist and tender with lovely flavor

The flavors were good, but the cook times were funny. Baking the fresh mozzarella so long drew its water out and into the baking dish, leaving the cheese and the chicken rubbery. I'll wait until the end to add the cheese and tomatoes next time.

YUMMY! Next time, I will make a spread with softened butter, minced garlic and Italian seasoning - easier than brushing melted butter. The asparagus are wonderful and a great complement to the chicken.
