Crew’s Mess: Chicken and Bocconcini Caprese Salad

ADVERTISEMENT

Crew’s Mess: by Capt. John Wampler

Here is a recipe that I like to use for a flavorful alternative to greens. I like to double the amount of cheese marinated as it makes a nice addition to an appetizer tray. Bocconcini are 1- to 2-inch balls of fresh mozzarella packed in water. I have also seen them packaged as mozzarella “pearls.” They can be found in the refrigerated aisle of most grocery stores.

 

Ingredients

16 oz. drained bocconcini

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp. capers, finely chopped

2 Tbsp. fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. fresh thyme, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

1 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

 

Mix ingredients together in bowl. Refrigerate four hours, turning once an hour.

 

4 boneless chicken breasts, split

I pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half

2 Tbsp. coarse black pepper

1 tsp. sea salt

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Caprese salad

Pound chicken breasts until half-inch thick.

In a cast iron skillet, heat EVOO and char chicken until cooked through. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.

In a bowl, combine all ingredients and bocconcini (including marinade) until well incorporated. Chill in fridge and then serve. Enjoy.
