Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon, divided
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or dried oregano
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
  • 3 large slicing tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped basil
  • 4 slices mozzarella
  • Freshly grated Parmesan, for serving


  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, half of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of pepper and Italian seasoning. Whisk to combine all ingredients. Transfer the combination to a large, resealable bag along with the chicken; seal and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  2. Heat your grill to medium-high and add the chicken, discarding extra marinade. Grill the chicken until it’s cooked to an internal temperature of 155 F to 160 F — about 5 to 7 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil and remaining lemon juice, and season the mixture with salt and pepper. While the chicken is on the grill, top each breast with one slice of mozzarella and cover until the cheese is melted — about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Top the chicken with your tomato mixture and garnish it with Parmesan before serving.
