I’ve been a little crazy over juicy summer peaches these days.  Can you tell by my grilled peach and pesto quinoa and Tuscan panzanella salad?

Something about juicy peaches paired with basil and balsamic in the summer is absolutely delicious.

We’re at the 55-day mark for the wedding.  HOLY COW how did that happen?

Trying to get all those Pinterest projects done, wedding invitations and all that other good stuff.

How to make hasselback peach caprese chicken?

  1. Marinate the chicken breasts in an easy balsamic marinade for at least an hour or overnight.

  2. Once the chicken is marinated, make slits in each chicken breast.  Use a small paring knife to make a horizontal slit about ¾ of the way through the chicken.  Be careful not to go all the way through.  Depending on the size of your chicken, you’ll need about 4-5 slits per breast.

  3. Stuff each slit with 1 slice of peach, piece of mozzarella and a fresh basil leaf.  Repeat with each slit on each piece of chicken.

  4. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked all the way through.

  5. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and extra fresh basil and serve.

Hasselback caprese chicken can be prepared up to 1 day before and baked the next day.  If you want the mozzarella cheese a little golden brown, you can turn the broiler on and bake for 1-2 minutes. 

Aside from being quick and easy, this healthy stuffed caprese chicken is keto approved and low carb. 

Perfect for someone like me trying to stay healthy and fit for their first wedding dress fitting (eeeekkkk)
