  • 1 Butchers Twine


  • 3 Ea Chicken Breast
  • 2 Ea Roma or Garden Tomato Something Flavorful and not too small
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Glaze Something semi-sweet will do great
  • 1 Ea Fresh Mozzarella Sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder Mix Season to your liking (but season in layers)
  • 1 Ea Fresh Basil


  • Start by butterflying your chicken breasts and flattening them with a mallet or heavy pan.
  • Lay the chicken out flat so that it creates one full "sheet" of chicken.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Layer with Tomato, Basil, Balsamic Glaze, Fresh Mozz, more Balsamic, and basil. (as shown in the photo)
  • Using plastic wrap, begin tightly rolling up the chicken breast, ensuring that the tomato and mozzarella stay tightly inside the chicken.
  • If you have butchers twine, this is where you would tie the chicken tightly.
  • Season the outside of the chicken with Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder, and Chopped Basil.
  • Grill the chicken, top and bottom, for around 5 minutes on both sides, or until the chicken has some nice defined grill marks.
  • Wrap the chicken in aluminum foil, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the inside of the chicken reads an internal temp of at least 165 degrees F'.
  • Let the chicken rest inside of the foil on a cutting board for another 5-10 minutes. (This will help the chicken from becoming dry).
  • Now slice the chicken and enjoy. I like to serve this with some fresh grilled veggies or next time some flavorful mashed potatoes.
