Caprese Hasselback Chicken Breast Low Carb Recipe | Keto Vale

Keto Caprese Hasselback Chicken Breast

Let’s make a refreshing change to chicken. Everyone loves a caprese salad of tomatoes, basil and cheese, so why not to try a chicken caprese?

With just a few simple ingredients including fresh mozzarella and basil leaves, you can make this healthy, stand-out chicken breast dinner in under 30 minutes.

Low Carb Caprese Hasselback Chicken

If you want to add more flavor to your caprese chicken, just marinate the breasts using the combination of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Italian seasoning (or any other seasoning of your choice), salt and pepper.

For the best taste, pour the marinade into a resealable plastic bag or food container, add chicken breasts and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.

Cutting crosswise slits every half-inch along the chicken breast (the hasselback technique) allows the chicken to cook faster and ensures you get a burst of flavorful gooey filling with each bite.
