Your Whole Family Will Love This Mozzarella Chicken Recipe

Chicken is a great base for any meal. It’s lean, packed with protein, and versatile enough to work with several combinations of ingredients.

There are many ways you can add flavor and texture to chicken to change things up for your family dinner. One way is to add cheese. While any cheese will work well with chicken, we feel mozzarella has a creamy, milky flavor that is the perfect complement to chicken’s light and neutral taste.

Read on to find out more about our mozzarella chicken dish and other dishes you can make with chicken and cheese.

Chicken Mozzarella Bake

When most of us think of chicken and mozzarella cheese, the first thing that comes to mind is chicken parmesan.

This recipe is not unlike chicken parmesan, but the key ingredient of tomato sauce is omitted. To make the meal, slice chicken breasts into serving size portions. Place in a bowl of slightly beaten egg and refrigerate for one hour.

When you take it out, it will be ready to be dipped into a mixture of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Fry in butter until brown. Mushrooms are an optional ingredient in this dish. If you are using them, you will want to sauté them in advance and put them on top of the breaded chicken.

Put the chicken in a dish and bake. Then, put cheese slices on top and put the chicken back in the oven until the cheese melts. The chicken can be served with a side of veggies, potatoes, pasta or a nice, fresh salad. It is sure to make for a meal your family will love.

Another Mozzarella Chicken Recipe to Try

One variation on our mozzarella chicken recipe is the Balsamic baked chicken breast. To make the recipe, put the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Arrange tomato and onion around the chicken.

Whisk together a combination of balsamic vinegar, sugar, and garlic and pour over both sides of the chicken breast. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and put the dish back in the oven until the cheese has melted. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Mozzarella Chicken Salad Recipes

Chicken and mozzarella can make for a great hot dish, but it can also make the perfect base for a salad.

Though we often think of mozzarella as a cheese that works well when melted, the Caprese salad has made us realize that mozzarella can also be delicious when served cold. For those that don’t know, the Caprese salad is an Italian salad made with mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, and seasoned with salt and olive oil.

It is typically served layered on a plate and makes a terrific Italian tribute, as it features all the colors of the Italian flag. There are many variations of the Caprese salad, and some feature chicken.

An avocado chicken Caprese salad is a great variation of a traditional Caprese salad, with many added health benefits. To make the dressing for this salad, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, brown sugar, minced garlic, dried basil, and salt. Cut your chicken down into strips and toss with avocado, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil leaves.
