- Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
- On a parchment-lined baking sheet, season both sides of the chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.
- While the chicken is in the oven, combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a sauce pot and simmer, stirring occasionally.
- NOTE: It should take about 20 minutes for the mixture to reduce.
- Once the glaze has reached your desired thickness, remove it from the heat and set aside.
- Remove the chicken from the oven and top with slices of mozzarella and tomato.
- Broil for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melty and the tomatoes are slightly charred.
- While the chicken is broiling, you can chiffonade (cut into thin strips) the basil.
- Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the chicken and top with basil.
