I haven’t had many caprese salads this year yet, so I thought how could I get in my love for caprese at dinnertime? I immediately thought caprese casserole! That is where this chicken caprese casserole comes in to play.
Add all the caprese favorites: cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, greens, and vinegar. But add in chicken and more of a creamy texture to hold the casserole together. The leafy greens that are tossed in oil and vinegar really bring out the creaminess of the caprese casserole.
