Summer is a wonderful season that brings a sense of warmth and joy, and for many people, it also means firing up the grill on a daily basis. The act of grilling is not just a way to cook food; it's a whole experience that involves the sizzle of the grill, the aroma of the food cooking, and the anticipation of a delicious meal.


For me, grilling is a passion, and when it comes to grilling, chicken is my top choice. There's something about the charred, smoky flavor that the grill imparts to chicken that makes it irresistible.

One of my favorite summer BBQ meals is the grilled caprese chicken. This dish combines the classic flavors of a caprese salad – fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and fragrant basil – with the succulent, grilled chicken. The result is a dish that is not only visually appealing with its vibrant colors but also bursting with flavor. The sweetness of the tomatoes, the creaminess of the mozzarella, and the herbaceousness of the basil all complement the smoky, charred chicken perfectly.

As the summer progresses, I find myself reaching for this grilled caprese chicken recipe time and time again. It has become a staple in my summer cooking repertoire, a dish that never fails to impress both family and friends. Whether it's a casual weeknight dinner or a weekend BBQ gathering, this dish is always a hit. So, as the summer stretches out before me, I look forward to many more days of grilling and enjoying this delicious grilled caprese chicken – a true taste of summer.
