Best Chicken To Use For Caprese Chicken

Boneless chicken is best as you want a flat surface so your sliced cheese and tomatoes can sit nicely on top.

Recipe FAQs

How long do you grill chicken?

This all depends on the thickness of your chicken. Generally you will flip chicken around 5-7 minute mark. Then check to see the doneness. Chicken is fully cooked when it is 165 degrees internally.

Do you flip chicken on the grill?

Flipping chicken on the grill allows for an even cook. It will also provide pretty grill marks on both sides of the chicken breast.

Which side of chicken do you grill first?

You will always grill skin side down. For this Caprese recipe you use a boneless skinless breast. So it is not as imperative. But if you have skin always do the skin side down first for a crispy texture on the skin.
