Do you want to surprise your family or your guests with a new refined dish?I wanted to and moreover I had to invent a special menu for our wedding anniversarys. Many-many years ago our first date took place at an Italian restaurant. I can hardly remember the food we had there, but the cuisine was Italian of course. Even my husband remembers that. So, with a little bit of searching I found the perfect recipe to make in this blog. Most home chefs know of the famous Caprese salad, but I thought Caprese chicken to be a rare find. The name of the dish seemed charming and the easy recipe inspired me to cook it.
There were some other dishes on our table this night but the caprese chicken brought back memories of our first date like they were yesterday. The taste will make you think are eating at a local restaurant in Italy. If you like Italian dishes or grilled food, you will fall in love with this basil smelling fantastic chicken.
