Balsamic Marinated Chicken Salad Recipe

Balsamic marinated chicken...

Creamy mozzarella...

Juicy cherry tomatoes...

Fresh basil...

I could eat this every day! 

It's an awesome summer salad you can prepare ahead of time. Just refrigerate the dressing until it's time to serve. 


  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp salt

  • chicken breasts (I used 2 chicken breasts and 4 chicken thighs)
  • 1 bag of romaine (short cut!)
  • 1 container of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • mozzarella balls (I bought the whole log and used about 3/4)
  • 5 or 6 fresh basil leaves, rolled together and then thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix the marinate together and set aside. 
  2. Place the chicken in a dish, pour about 8 tbsp. of the marinade on the chicken to coat. Set aside the remaining mixture for the dressing. 
  3. You can either grill or bake the chicken. I baked in a 450 oven for about 45 minutes. When done, set aside to rest and cool. 
  4. Chop the chicken into bite size chunks and toss together with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and chicken. Gently toss in the basil. 
  5. Drizzle with the remaining marinade. 
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
