    2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt to taste
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
    4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
    2 tablespoons high quality olive oil, divided
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 - 1/2 lbs total)
    1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    2 cups cherry tomatoes
    1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, sliced
    3-4 tablespoons high quality balsamic vinegar


    Add chicken into a shallow bowl and stir in the seasonings, garlic, sea salt and pepper to your taste, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Toss until really well coated on all sides pressing seasonings into the chicken a bit, then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes up to 2 hours.

    Preheat your oven to 400°F.

    Remove your seasoned chicken from the refrigerator 10-15 minutes prior to cooking.

    Heat a large cast iron, or oven safe skillet over medium-high heat and add the remaining oil. Sear the chicken for 3 minutes on each side to give it a nice color, then add in your cherry tomatoes, and drizzle everything with balsamic vinegar.

    Place this entire skillet into your preheated 400° oven and bake uncovered until cooked through and no longer pink in the inside, about 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle chicken with shredded mozzarella, then return to the oven and continue to bake for just a minute until cheese is nice and melted.

    Garnish with fresh basil.
