Schools for all our grandkids are back in session this week, and we celebrated Labor Day weekend with a trip down to southeastern Minnesota and the historic 1895 schoolhouse which my college roommate and her husband, John's cousin, have turned into their summer retirement home. It was a fun excursion seeing their  plans come to life.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
I don't remember where this recipe came from, but it was in my pile of recipes to try and this week seemed like a good time. Simple recipe with good flavor. I used fresh mozzarella.
CHICKEN CAPRESE
Chicken caprese
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoons shredded fresh basil
  • 4 slices mozzarella

 In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until golden and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Add balsamic vinegar to skillet to deglaze, then add garlic and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. Add tomatoes and season with salt. Let simmer until soft, 5-7 minutes.

Stir in basil and return chicken to skillet, nestling it in the tomatoes. Top chicken with slices of mozzarella and cover with lid to melt cheese.

Cook angel hair pasta according to package directions and serve with chicken topped with tomatoes.
