Prepare the chicken breast by pounding to less than 1 inch thick. Set aside.
Begin by heating a large skillet pan to medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add 2 tbsp of butter and crushed garlic. Simmer for about 1 minute until the garlic is fragrant and the butter is golden.
Add chicken breast. Cook on each side for 2 minutes, until the chicken is golden. It will not be cooked through, set aside for later.
Add the other 2 tbsp of butter to the pan, then toss in the cherry tomatoes. Cover the pan, and cook the tomatoes for another 5-7 minutes or until the tomatoes are softened and can be pressed down to make a thick sauce. Mix in 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar and salt.
Add the chicken back to the pan and cover. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until chicken is almost cooked through.
Drizzle with remaining balsamic and add fresh basil. Serve warm on top of a salad, with crusty bread, or with pasta.
*Use avocado in place of mozzarella for a dairy free version.
