Moist grilled chicken and a bed of greens added to the classic Caprese salad of garden ripe tomatoes with sweet, fresh bocconcini, and spicy basil, captures summer on a plate. It doesn’t even matter what time of year it is, you’ll love it!
1. Preheat barbecue grill to medium-high.
2. In a measuring cup or bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
3. Place chicken in a shallow dish; pour 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the dressing and stir to coat evenly. Place chicken on the grill, cover and grill for about 4 minutes or until white around the edges and bottoms are browned; flip over, cover and grill for 2-4 minutes, or until no longer pink inside. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest for 5 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss greens with half of the remaining dressing; arrange on serving plates. Arrange cheese and tomato slices alternating in a half-circle on top of the greens. Cut chicken into slices and arrange it in the center of the circle. Drizzle evenly with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with basil.
