20 Minute Chicken Caprese Skillet

This 20 minute chicken caprese skillet is delicious and so easy to make. It requires minimal time and minimal ingredients. Chicken breasts, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil, and garlic. I made this after having chicken caprese this past weekend and needed an at home version. I love taking recipes and making them simple and easy. I love fancy recipes but hate the time they normally take .This meal feels fancy but isn’t difficult to make at all!

What Pan I Used:

I made this 20 minute chicken caprese skillet in my cast iron skillet. I also have an our place pan which I love but it’s not oven safe. Sometimes when I’m cooking dishes like this I like to stick it in the oven at the end to finish cooking. I’ll put the oven on broil to get everything nice and crispy.
