Tips, Tricks and Variations
Can I make a Grilled Chicken Caprese Sandwich?
Absolutely! I love anything on a grill. Fire up the grill and preheat to medium heat. Chicken needs to cook all the way through, so you don’t want the temperature to get too high or you will risk charring the outside and undercooking the middle. I always use a meat thermometer to check that it is at least 165° Fahrenheit.
Can I make a Gluten Free Chicken Caprese?
This meal is just as amazing sans the bread. If you are skipping the gluten, I recommenced layering everything right in the skillet. Once the chicken is cooked through add the tomato, basil, and finally the mozzarella. Place the skillet in the oven until the cheese starts to melt and then you are ready to plate it and serve!
