4 ripe tomatoes on the vine

10 large basil leaves, cut chiffonade, plus more for garnish

3 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed through a garlic press

salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp sugar

3 tbl olive oil

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halved horizontally to make 4 fillets

Salt and pepper

Fresh mozzarella or provolone slices

Parmigiano reggiano

Pine nuts


Combine the first 6 ingredients in a bowl and set aside for at least 20 minutes to let the flavors marinade. 
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet, and sear chicken breasts over medium-high heat until browned on both sides and cooked through (about 6 minutes each side). Remove from pan; top with cheese of your choice, and place under broiler to melt. 
Once cheese is melted, top with bruschetta tomatoes, freshly grated parmigiano reggiano, more fresh basil and pine nuts.  Serve and enjoy!
