Step 1

Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper (see cook's tip #1 below for quick and even cooking)

Step 2

Heat an indoor griddle or pan over high heat. Drizzle about 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to coat bottom of pan. (See Cook's Tip #2 if you prefer to use outdoor grill)

Step 3

Add chicken and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or till done (chicken's internal temperature should register 165 degrees F.)

Step 4

At the last couple minutes or so of cooking, top each piece of chicken with a bit of the basil pesto, then add mozzarella slice on top.

Step 5

Remove from heat. Add fresh basil leaves and tomato slices on top, spoon a little balsamic glaze on top. Finally, sprinkle fresh basil ribbons.
