Parmesan Chicken with Fresh Tomato Relish

  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt
  • 2/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 large chicken breasts, sliced into individual serving sizes
  • 2 T. mayonnaise
  • 3 oz. fresh mozzarella (sometimes called buffalo mozzarella), torn or sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 c. chopped fresh tomatoes (I like to use a variety for flavor, texture, and color)
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine the Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, coarse salt, and grated parmesan in a shallow dish. Set aside.

Lightly brush the chicken pieces with the mayonnaise. Then dredge the pieces through the seasoned cheese mixture and set carefully on the prepared baking sheet. When all of the chicken pieces have been coated, bake them for 20 minutes in the preheated oven or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove the chicken from the oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

While the chicken is baking/resting, combine the remaining ingredients (fresh mozzarella through salt and pepper) in a small bowl. Serve the chicken topped with the fresh tomato relish and enjoy!
