Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

INGREDIENTS
4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon, divided
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. Italian seasoning or dried oregano
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
3 slicing tomatoes, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. freshly chopped basil
4 slices mozzarella
Freshly grated Parmesan, for serving

DIRECTIONS
In a small bowl, combine oil, half the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and Italian seasoning (or oregano) and whisk to combine. Transfer to a large re-sealable bag along with chicken; seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat grill over medium-high then add chicken, discarding excess marinade. Grill until charred and cooked to an internal temperature of 165°, about 5 to 7 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, and remaining lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. While chicken is still on grill, top each breast with 1 slice mozzarella and cover until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Top chicken with tomato mixture.
Garnish with Parmesan and serve.
