 Ingredients List

  • Chicken:
  • 1 (8 ounce) container plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 8 thin-cut boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • Tomato-Mozzarella Topping:
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium-size onion, cut into 16 wedges
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, cored, seeded and chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese (usually packed in water), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, chopped


1. For the Chicken: In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and balsamic vinegar until blended. In a plastic food-storage bag, combine chicken and yogurt mixture. Seal and turn the bag to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat a gas grill or grill pan to medium-high.

3. For the Tomato-Mozzarella Topping: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute about 5 minutes or until onion is slightly softened and the wedges fall into pieces. Add the balsamic vinegar and water. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook about 7 minutes until liquid is reduced and onion is tender.

4. Increase heat to medium-high and add tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from the heat. Let mixture cool for 2-3 minutes then stir in mozzarella cubes and basil gently.

5. Remove chicken from bag. Discard marinade. Gently rinse chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. I know, sounds weird, but do it.

6. Spray grill with cooking spray or coat with oil. Grill for 6-8 minutes per side. Serve immediately. Serve chicken on platter with topping in the center and let guests spoon their topping on.
