Preparation

1
Place oven rack 4-inches from heat. Preheat broiler to HIGH. Line a rimmed baking pan with foil. Toss tomatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ½ teaspoon salt in medium bowl until coated. Spread tomatoes in prepared baking pan. Broil for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly charred. Return tomatoes to medium bowl.
2
Place chicken on a cutting board; pat chicken dry with paper towels. Cover with plastic wrap. Lightly pound to ½-inch thickness using the flat side of a meat mallet. Remove plastic wrap; sprinkle both sides of chicken with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper.
3
Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes until lightly browned and chicken reaches 165°, turning once halfway through.
4
Add mozzarella, ¼ cup chopped basil, remaining 3 tablespoon olive oil, and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper with tomatoes in bowl; toss to combine.
5
Serve tomato mixture alongside chicken on serving plates. Drizzle chicken with balsamic glaze and garnish with additional basil leaves, if desired.
