    Really depends on your quality of chicken and vegetables and oil for this recipe otherwise you end up with basic flavors. I used a balsamic oil and larger breasts and more cheese, almost needs smaller breasts to keep balanced flavors.

    Very delicious. I made it for two and used the left over mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes to make a caprese salad. Will absolutely make this again.

    Delicious recipe!! I did change the recipe a bit. I only had 2 8ounce breasts and used fresh garlic instead of dried. I bought 2 large tomatoes and had 2 slices left for munching while the dish baked in the oven. I LOVE balsalmic glaze, so I used double the recipe had called for. I will definitely make again!!

    Very easy meal. We substituted squash and zucchini for the asparagus. Good meal at the end of a busy day.

    great recipe for a beginner like myself, i screwed up my balsamic reduction and it was still really good

    A couple minor adjustments. Thin sliced the chicken. Put the basil shreds on the chicken and “beat” it in with a kitchen mallet. Soaked my tomato slices in balsamic. Used the broiler to brown the mozzarella. Then served on ciabatta with a yoghurt garlic spread. No asparagus.

    I got so many oohs & aahs and "this looks like a fancy french restaurant" lol. Was super easy and I'm not kidding i kept hearing "mmm" throughout dinner from everyone! I did make two changes: added honey to the reduction and used cabbage leaves tossed in basil paste in place of basil leaves.

    It was quite yummy, guess I put too much mozza because it ran all over the chicken but was ooey and gooey. I subbed garlic powder for actual garlic, so it was pretty flavourful. Only made the caprese chicken part, not the asparagus.

    Recipe turned out great. I definitely will make it again. I cooked the chicken a little longer than recipe though. Even sent the instructions straight to my smart range.
