This Caprese Grilled Chicken is a perfect summertime recipe. It is quick, easy, and healthy. You can make this in 30 minutes or less for a weeknight dinner. I love caprese salads in the summer and the corn goes well with the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. The tomatoes and basil were from my local farmer's market; I love being able to get fresh ingredients. This Caprese Grilled Chicken is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

1 pound chicken breasts
1 teaspoon garlic, granulated
