Balsamic chicken caprese pasta topped with fresh mozzarella and basil -the perfect dish for summer!

One of my all time favorite combos is balsamic + fresh mozerrella + tomatoes + basil. I almost alllllllways have a caprese salad if it’s on the menu when we’re dining out. I can’t resist. Add some chicken and pasta and you have a winner! You just can’t go wrong with those key ingredients in my opinion.Balsamic chicken caprese pasta topped with fresh mozzarella and basil -make this recipe in 30 minutes or less!

The fresh basil is what really completes this dish. My kids picked some basil from our garden and were so excited to put it in the pasta. When I let my kids help me cook in the kitchen, they are more likely to eat it. Although let’s be honest… it gets quite messy at times!
