Chicken Caprese

This delicious dish and can be served cold or hot. It made about 6 servings and we used the whole bottle of dressing. We also steamed some broccoli and added it on top. The fantastic thing about this dish is it is very versatile. You can add or reduce items per your liking and it still tastes great! I hope you enjoy!

½ cup olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons honey
