What is Tomato Basil Chicken with Burrata?

Burrata chicken with tomato basil topping is our go-to dish for impressing family and friends! We start with perfectly marinated chicken breasts and grill them to juicy perfection before piling on a fresh, vibrant mix of seasoned diced Roma tomatoes and creamy, dreamy burrata cheese that oozes with rich, milky goodness.

Ingredients You Need

For The Chicken

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts – These are the stars of the show, staying juicy and tender while soaking up all the amazing flavors.
  • Olive Oil – Keeps the chicken moist and adds a rich, smooth flavor that’s simply irresistible.
  • Italian Seasoning – This blend of herbs gives the chicken that classic Italian vibe!
  • Garlic Powder – Brings a subtle, savory punch that makes the chicken extra tasty.
  • Salt – Enhances all the natural flavors and ties everything together.
  • Black Pepper – Adds just the right amount of mild heat to boost the other seasonings.

Burrata and Tomato Basil Topping

  • Roma Tomatoes – Perfectly firm and sweet, these tomatoes add a burst of freshness to the dish.
  • Salt And Pepper – These simple seasonings bring out the best in the tomatoes and balance the flavors.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice – We love the zesty brightness that lemon juice gives the topping.
  • Olive Oil – Smooths everything out, making the topping rich and flavorful.
  • Fresh Basil – Bursts with aromatic flavor, pairing perfectly with the juicy tomatoes.
  • Balsamic Glaze – Drizzle this sweet and tangy glaze over everything for a finish that’s out of this world!
  • Burrata – This cheese adds the perfect creaminess to the top of the chicken and pairs beautifully with the bright tomato basil topping

How to Make Tomato Basil Chicken with Burrata

  • Marinate. Add all of the ingredients for the chicken marinade into a large bowl. Then add the chicken and coat it with the marinade. 
  • Cook. Place the chicken on the preheated grill and cook on both sides until the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Prep the Topping. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, and basil to a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  • Assemble. After the cooked chicken has rested briefly, top it with burrata cheese, tomato basil topping, and balsamic glaze and serve immediately.

Variations

  • Chicken – Swap the chicken breasts with chicken thighs.
  • Olive Oil – Use avocado oil or any other neutrally flavored oil.
  • Italian Seasoning – Try using fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, or oregano instead.
  • Tomatoes – Use heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, or Roma tomatoes for a variety of flavors and colors.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice – Try using balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar for a different tangy twist.
  • Olive Oil in Topping – Use flavored olive oils like garlic or basil-infused for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Fresh Basil – Mix in other fresh herbs like parsley, mint, or cilantro for a unique twist.
  • Balsamic Glaze – Drizzle with a honey balsamic reduction or even a fig balsamic for a sweet kick.
  • Burrata Cheese – Replace with fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, or even a dollop of ricotta for a different creamy experience.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

You can definitely store leftovers of this dish! However, you might want to store the components separately, if possible so that you can easily reheat the chicken. 

Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container. 

While we don’t recommend freezing the burrata, the chicken and the topping can both be frozen in freezer-safe containers for up to 3 months.

    Delicious and so fresh, the flavors are so simple yet bright, perfect for a summer dinner! I could not find burrata so I replaced with mozzarella. I also marinated the chicken for a few hours before grilling. This will go into the rotation!
