21 Day Fix Approved Caprese Chicken

Friday, December 16, 2016

Are you craving some Italian flavors without all of the carbs? This caprese style chicken really hits the spot!

I can't remember how I first came up with this recipe, but it's been a staple in our house for a while. 
It's also super easy to make kid friendly (or husband friendly for that matter). I just added a side of noodles and cut up the chicken for my toddlers and we had a happy family dinner. 

Bake chicken in a pan with a little olive oil, about 10 minutes a side with the lid on, this helps keep the chicken moist. 

Halve and quarter cherry tomatoes, mix in a bowl with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add a little salt and pepper.

Mix ricotta cheese with Italian seasoning.

Once chicken is cooked place on a plate with a dallop  of the ricotta cheese mixture and spoon tomato mixture over the top.

I like to serve mine with salad to get some veggies in! I also sprinkle some red pepper flakes over the top, because I think everything can use a little heat.

This is a great go to if you need a meal without any yellows (aka carbs for my non fixers).

Bon Appetito!
