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 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 3 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly

  • 4 ounces (115 grams) mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4 inch slices

  • 1/4 cup (60 milliliters) Parmesan cheese

  • 5 to 6 basil leaves

  • 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 1/2 milliliters) salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 1/2 milliliters) freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.

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

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

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

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

  7. Cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes.

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

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

  10. Enjoy!
