Another great summer classic is the fabulous combination of fresh mozzarella and tomato! Try this easy recipe for a quick weeknight dinner!
My tomato plants are in the garden and hopefully soon I’ll be using fresh homegrown tomatoes! This recipe is as easy as they come! You can grill the chicken outside on the grill or, like me, use a panini press (or George Foreman Grill). I like using the panini press because while the chicken is cooking you can prep all the other ingredients, all three of them!
