Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes | Servings: 4 servings | Calories: 315kcal


  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella sliced into 5 or 6 slices
  • 1 medium tomato sliced into 5 or 6 slices (as many as you have thighs)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil until over medium heat until shimmering. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper and add in a single layer to pan. Sear on the first side until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes, then sear on the second side another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Arrange chicken in a single layer in a medium casserole dish or glass baking pan. Top each chicken thigh with a slice of fresh mozzarella, then top each with a slice of tomato.
  • Bake 25 to 28 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling and chicken is cooked through. Turn on broiler for 2 or 3 minutes to brown the top of the cheese.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with fresh basil.
