Fast and Easy Chicken Caprese

Good morning!
If you have lots of cherry tomatoes and basil you need to make this for dinner! It is so good I have made it twice this week already!
What you need..
boneless skinless chicken breasts ( I split them in half so they are thinner and cook faster )
salt and pepper
3 Tbsp. olive oil and 1 tbsp. of butter
handful of fresh basil
heaping tablespoon of brown sugar
about 2 cups sliced in half cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 
mozzarella cheese
Using a big frying pan with your butter and olive oil melted add your chicken that has been seasoned with salt and pepper on both sides.. cook until almost all the way done ..mine were about 7 minutes a side because they are thin..
cut your cherry tomatoes in half 
 and chop up your basil while your chicken is cooking ..

 Pile up your chicken on the sides and add the vinegar to the middle of the pan .. add the brown sugar and the cherry tomatoes ..mix it up  a little bit and place your chicken back all over the pan ( try for a single layer so the cheese gets evenly distributed).. add most of the basil to the top of the chicken ( reserve a little for the finished dish ) then add the mozzarella cheese in slices or shreds all over the top of the chicken ..put a lid on the pan on low/ medium until the cheese is melted ..

we like ours on angel hair pasta ..with a sprinkle of Romano cheese ..make sure you add a little of the tomatoes and balsamic over the top .. so good and very fast and easy! Even my husband and son who don't like tomatoes love this recipe ..

My husband loves this, it has sooo much flavor. I’ll be adding this to my list of go to dishes. Makes a great dish for large families and or if you’re having company. Give it a try!!!
Thank you Pricilla for sharing ❤️

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Priscilla, for sharing this amazing recipe!!!
I almost cried, when my husband took the first bite... he is extremely picky when it comes to food, and he just loved it!! It was so quick and easy to prepare... I'll definitely be making it again :)
P.S. I just thought I'd mention a couple of small changes that I made. I added a few cloves of fresh garlic while cooking the chicken, and since we don't eat processed sugars, I used pure maple syrup instead of the brown sugar. It was perfect!
