4 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

4 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

2 large zucchini

2 cups tomatoes, chopped

4 oz. mozzarella pearls

1/4 cup fresh basil

1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

Step 1


Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and black pepper. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the 4 chicken breasts and ½ of the balsamic dressing. Set the remaining dressing aside for serving. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 2


With a mandoline, julienne peeler or spiral slicer, turn the zucchini into noodles. Onto a large platter, combine the zucchini noodles, chopped tomatoes and mozzarella pearls.

Step 3


Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Grill the chicken breasts for 3 to 4 minutes per side until done. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove from the grill and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Chop into bite-sized pieces.

Step 4


Top the platter of zucchini noodles, tomatoes and mozzarella with chicken pieces. Drizzle with remaining balsamic dressing and garnish with basil chiffonade and toasted pine nuts.
