This post is sponsored by The French Farm for #CookoutWeek. All opinions, as always, are my own. Grilled Sweet Caprese Chicken is made with chicken breasts marinated in a sweet cherry tomato sauce, grilled and topped with basil and mozzarella cheese.

Welcome to day 4  of #CookoutWeek hosted by The PinterTest Kitchen. You can read all about the giveaway, the participating bloggers, and find out more about the sponsors on my earlier post this week, and be sure to leave a comment to answer the question I asked after the recipe to earn a bonus entry.

I have to say that when I first tasted this cherry tomato sauce sent to me to try from The French Farm it didn’t taste very much like sweet cherry tomatoes to me. I guess this is one of those things that has to be heated in order to bring out it’s full flavor, because once I tasted this Grilled Sweet Caprese Chicken I could definitely taste it. I’m going to have to order more of it, since we decided not to plant a garden this year due to lack of time to work on it I won’t have fresh cherry tomatoes right on hand. Or cucumbers, or hot peppers…I’m a little sad about it.

Grilled Sweet Caprese Chicken

When cooking chicken breasts I pound them with a meat mallet to make them as much of an even thickness as possible so they cook evenly and are all done at the same time. If you chicken breasts are thicker, they will require a longer cooking time. Simply continue to brush them with the marinade occasionally to keep them from drying out.
