Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour or use gluten-free
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 10 tablespoons cold salted butter, cubed (see note)
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 ounces buffalo or regular mozzarella, torn
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, torn


  • Preheat the broiler. Place the egg and flour in separate shallow bowls.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge both sides of the chicken through the egg, and then through the flour, tossing to coat. Place the chicken on a plate.
  • In an oven-safe skillet set over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add the tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon thyme, and a pinch each of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the tomatoes begin to pop, about 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat and transfer the tomatoes to a plate.
  • In the same skillet, melt together 4 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add the chicken and cook until the bottom side is golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip the chicken and add 6 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon thyme, swirling the butter around the chicken. Cook, basting the chicken in butter until the chicken is cooked and golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, add the mozzarella around the chicken. Spoon the tomatoes and lemon juice over top. Transfer to the oven, broil 1 minute, until the cheese is melted. Serve topped with lots of fresh basil. Enjoy!
