Caprese Chicken with Bacon
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
I subbed in drained diced tomatoes and shredded mozzarella cheese. Looks like a fancy dish but easy to make
Very tasty Chicken upper ! I baked mine a little bit longer. I used bone in chicken thighs. Boneless is the better choice. Super easy to put together. Next time I will use Provolone cheese. Bake in a shallow pan for even browning. I upped the oven temp to 450 after adding the bacon and tomato. Baked for about 15 extra minutes. Bacon browned perfectly.
This is my new favorite chicken dish! It tastes so fresh and is bursting with flavor. The chicken turned out juicy in the oven and prep was easy. The only change I made was to use shredded cheese instead of slices since that's what I had on hand. The combination of chicken, bacon, cheese, basil, and tomato is perfection. It's also a visually appealing dish. I served it with couscous and a salad. This is now on our go-to recipes list.
This recipe was a hit. Everyone cleaned their plates. This recipe is very easy and perfect for a weeknight dinner or company. I will say I read it wrong and cooked the bacon more than I should have but it worked out fine. It didn't burn in the oven. I used fresh mozzarella but you could use shredded or slices. Definitely a keeper.*Volunteer Field Editor
This was simple and delicious! Everyone in our family really enjoyed this recipe. We will make this again soon!
I will definitely make this again. Next time I will use sun dried tomatoes. The presentation was company worthy.

I tried this on a whim since I had all the ingredients. I thought it was juicy and tender. The bacon was a nice touch, but I didn't use as much as the recipe called for since I only had 4 slices. After tasting the recipe as written, I added a bit of balsamic glaze which really heightened all the flavors. Definitely worth a try.
We really liked this dinner. Chicken was juicy and tender. Definitely keeping this one. My husband gave me his tomatoes because usually he doesn't eat them.
This was really good after I took the bacon off. I thought the bacon was too overpowering and salty. Also, it didn't taste like caprese with the bacon. Next time I will leave the bacon off. I sliced the tomatoes thick and the cheese as well. I will make it again without the bacon.
