Chicken Breasts with Tomato, Basil & Arugula/Spinach

December 5, 2015

If you like caprese salad, you will love this—so fresh and so simple! Enjoy!

 

 

Serves 4

Ingredients:

• 4 organic, skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 1.5 to 2 pounds)

• 1/4-1/2 cup thinly sliced packed fresh basil leaves

• 1 pound ripe tomatoes diced into 1/2 inch cubes.

• 4-6 cups baby arugula and/or spinach

• 5-6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

• 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

• 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

• Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

To Prepare:

• Wash and pat dry chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper.

• Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until just

   simmering.

• Cook chicken on one side for 8-10 minutes (depending on how thick breasts are) until golden-         brown then flip and continue to cook on other side another 8-10 minutes, scraping together any       brown bits. (Add a little extra olive oil if needed and cook a few minutes longer if needed at a           medium heat–always check to make sure chicken is cooked thoroughly!)

 

As the chicken is cooking:

• In a medium size bowl, combine and toss together tomatoes, basil, garlic, vinegar, 3 tablespoons      of oil and about 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper (to taste).

• Let the chicken cool a few minutes then slice into 2 inch strips (or you can serve the breasts           whole, whatever you fancy!)

• On a large platter make a bed with the arugula or spinach mixture.

• Arrange the chicken on top and spoon on the tomato mixture and drizzle the juice over all.
