Margarita Chicken is one of my new favorite dishes.  It’s quick and easy to make, healthy, and a tasty meal you can enjoy all year round.  The chicken is grilled to perfection, then topped with melted cheese, pesto, tomatoes, and basil.

The recipe can be found here.

Here’s how you make it:

Start by combining the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a bowl.  Add the chicken and toss to coat.

In a separate bowl, combine the tomatoes, basil and lemon.

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.  Cook the chicken on each side for about 8-10 minutes.  I like to cook the chicken low and slow, so I don’t burn the meat if the chicken breasts are thick.  You can always cover the skillet to help evenly distribute the heat.  If you are better with a grill it’s OK to cook the chicken that way too!

Once the chicken is almost done cooking add a slice of mozzarella to each chicken breast and continue to heat until melted.

Place the chicken breast on a plate and top with a few spoonfuls of pesto.  Then top with the tomato mixture.

Serve immediately.

It’s perfect for a summer party, backyard grilling, or anytime you are looking for a 30-minute meal.

Happy Cooking!
