Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 1/2 pounds thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 5 basil leaves, chopped
  • Balsamic glaze, as desired


  • Medium Bowl
  • Step 1

    In a medium bowl, add the chicken, parsley, garlic, canola oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 1 to 2 hours.

  • Step 2

    Place the grill plate on the unit. Turn the dial to set temperature to 375°F. Set an external timer to 7 minutes and allow the grill plate to preheat.

  • Step 3

    When the unit is preheated, add the chicken to the grill plate, gently pressing down to maximize grill marks. Let the chicken cook undisturbed for 5 minutes, then flip and press down for 5 seconds. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    After the 5 minutes, place tomatoes on chicken, then sprinkle with mozzarella. Close the lid and let the cheese melt for 4 minutes.

  • Step 5

    When the cheese is melted, transfer the chicken to a platter or plate. Top with basil, then drizzle with balsamic glaze.
