  1. Preheat oven to 400F (204C) degrees
  2. Whisk together balsamic vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, and olive oil. Toss half with the broccoli and spread out onto a sheet pan. Sprinkle with salt and roast for 25 minutes, shaking midway
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat. Brush with some oil and then grill chicken on both sides for about 2 minutes (If grill pan isn't large enough to fit all the chicken pieces, transfer grilled pieces onto a sheet pan). Transfer chicken into the oven and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes in the oven. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add a slice of mozzarella onto each chicken breast
  4. When chicken is done, top cheese with a basil leaf and tomato slice. Drizzle with rest of the sauce and enjoy with your crunchy, roasted broccoli
