This is a great way to prepare this traditional favorite. Don't worry, while this recipe doesn't call for tomato sauce, it uses sliced tomatoes instead.


  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 3 Roma tomatoes sliced thinly
  • 4 ounces/115 g mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL Parmesan cheese
  • 5-6 basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.

  2. Pound chicken breast until about 1/4 inch thick.

  3. Coat with olive oil, salt, and black pepper.

  4. Place chicken on grill and cook for 5 minutes.

  5. Turn chicken over and place cheese and tomato slices on top.

  6. Cook for additional 5-6 minutes.

  7. Once the internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F., remove from heat, allow to sit for 1-2 minutes and place basil leaves on chicken before serving.

  8. Either serve over pasta or make into a chicken parmesan sandwich.
