Caprese Chicken Pasta

When you roast your veggies, sweeten your tomatoes and render your courgettes crispy while drinking balsamic marinade. Now, when you burn your veggies, there could seem to be more marinade/olive oil, but it is fine since the whole rusting pan of the body is to be added to our pasta - Tomatoes, asparagus, courgettes, and all the seasoned roasted garlic olive oil. Caprese Chicken Pasta


  • Caprese Marinade (basically balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic)
  • Two cups of cherry tomatoes halved or quartered depending on the size. Halve your cherry tomatoes horizontally if you have small ones and quarters for bigger ones. Don't forget to pop out any seeds! They're great in salads, though, so save them too. Trust me, and I know what's up with this tomato business...they are not all created equal sometimes. Those little watery buggers will fuck up an entire batch of sauce or soup just by being there.

Grilled Caprese Chicken

It is the perfect summer supper for the Grilled chicken Caprese. I'm using my garden's fresh tomatoes and basil. The dish is straightforward but so delicious! The chicken breast is seasoned with Italian spices, powdered garlic, and onion. I then cook the chicken with a piece of Mozzarella, tomato, basil, and a drizzle with a homemade balsamic reduction, topping each breast. And on the grill, I place a grape tomato and basil leaf for garnish.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced into 8 even pieces
