The secret to a successful caprese chicken recipe is to learn the science behind the Maillard reaction!
The ultimate goal is to brown your chicken breasts to caramelize them and give them a toasty aroma. It takes a lot of heat and patience to do this! Follow the guide for the easiest caprese chicken recipe!




The finishing touches




    1. Place the rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 415°F (210°C). Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels. 
    2. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add Maison Orphée's Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Season breasts with pepper and salt and place in a hot skillet.
    3. Cook for 3 minutes without stirring or until chicken is golden brown. Turn breasts over and cook for another 3 minutes.
    4. Place a slice of cheese and tomato slices on each piece of chicken. Add cherry tomatoes to the pan. Bake for an additional 10 to 13 minutes, or until cheese is melted and an instant-read thermometer registers 165ºF (74ºC) when inserted into the center of the largest chicken breast. 
    5. Add a drizzle of Maison Orphée's Basil Olive Oil, fresh basil and oregano to serve. Add a pinch of Fleur de Sel and pepper to taste. 



    If you don't have an ovenproof pan, you can start cooking on the stove and transfer the breasts to a baking sheet to finish cooking in the oven.
