Combine olive oil and spices. Coat each chicken cutlet thoroughly with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Add marinated chicken to grill and cook each side for about 6-8 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

During the last minute, place a slice of mozzarella cheese on each chicken breast.  Close the grill lid and let the cheese melt. Transfer to a serving platter.

Spread a generous dollop of basil pesto over each grilled chicken breast. Scatter halved cherry tomatoes on top. Garnish with fresh basil.
