Caprese Chicken Sliders

Caprese Chicken Sliders on a Sourdough Baguette from

Oh my goodness!  These Caprese Chicken Sliders were so incredibly tasty!  We made these for a fresh tasting appetizer the other day and they didn’t last long at all.  The only thing I regret was forgetting about the fresh basil and arugula I had in the fridge, we were so excited to eat these that I completely forgot about them and by the time I remembered the sliders were all gone.  Oh well, they were still really tasty with some sprinkled dried basil and drizzled balsamic reduction.
My husband was actually the brains behind the creation of this appetizer, we were thinking about making regular caprese chicken and ended up with this fun idea instead, I love that my husband loves good food.  🙂  Can someone just take me to Italy?  I would be perfectly content surviving on Italian food alone.  Maybe someday, in the meantime, I’ll just have to enjoy these yummy sliders.

Save Recipe


  • 1 sourdough baguette, sliced
  • 3 to 4 roma tomatoes
  • sliced mozzarella cheese
  • fresh basil or arugula
  • dried basil, to taste
  • balsamic reduction, to taste
  • For the Chicken:
  • 2 to 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 packet Good Seasons dry italian dressing mix
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. balsamic


  • Cut each chicken breast into four or five pieces, then pound each piece flat and place into a large plastic bag. Mix together the dry italian seasoning, olive oil, and balsamic and pour over the chicken in the bag. Seal and shake the bag around so the liquid is well distributed then marinate in the fridge for at least an hour before serving- the longer the better!
  • Remove chicken from bag and discard the marinade. Grill over medium heat, after the first side is cooked, top each piece of chicken with a slice of tomato, some basil, and a slice of mozzarella cheese.
  • When chicken is fully cooked, carefully remove each piece and place on a slice of sourdough baguette bread. Sprinkle with dried basil and drizzle with balsamic reduction.

    These looks delicious. I’m making Chicken Caprese dish for dinner this week but I love the appetizer idea.

    Probably a dumb question, but what is the balsamic reduction? Do you mean just cooking some balsamic vinegar in a pot until it’s thickened and evaporated a little, or am I missing something? lol

      You can definitely do it that way, you just want the balsamic thicker- not runny.
