Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast divided into four portions
  • 4 Slices Fresh Mozzarella Cheese 1” thick
  • 2 cups Zoodles raw or lightly sautéed
  • 1 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1.5 cups Grape Tomatoes halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup Packed Fresh Basil Leaves then cut into ribbons

  • 2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1 tsp. Ground Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400℉.
  • Place a pot over medium/high heat, and add balsamic vinegar and coconut sugar. Let come to a simmer and reduce for ~ 20 minutes, or until thickened into a glaze — stir occasionally.
  • Once the reduction is ready, place chicken in a baking dish and pour in reduction, tossing chicken until coated. Once coated, season chicken with salt, pepper, oregano and sprinkle chopped garlic and 1/2 cup of sliced tomatoes.

  • Once the chicken is ready, serve over zoodles and add basil and remaining tomatoes.
  • Serve, store, and enjoy!
