Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper and cook it in a skillet. Pour in the balsamic and chicken stock and bring the liquid to a boil. Then put slices of mozzarella and tomato on top of the chicken. Finally, bake it in the oven till it’s ready.

Margherita Variations:

This Margherita chicken is great all on its own, but you can make it even better by adding some of your favorite pizza toppings like olives, pepperoni, or pineapple—or a mix of all three! To make it even tastier, I like to cook the chicken in a mixture of olive oil and butter, but you can just use oil if you’d like.
