  5. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and garnish with the basil. Serve immediately
Recipe Notes

We all know a simple chicken breast can get very old very quickly, so the challenge lies in keeping it interesting.  The many varied ways you can prepare it will give the feel of a whole new and different dish. That being said, baking chicken with cheese is not my normal go to recipe. I make an effort to steer away from dishes that require cheese (although I love it) because cheese can be quite fattening. However, this recipe calls for a slice of the relatively low fat fresh mozzarella, so I gave it a try. And I am glad I did. I will save this one for special occasions only, but it was really very good.
