TV Dinner: Caprese ChickenPosted: Updated:
It's a lighter alternative to chicken Parmesan.
That's what Jeff Cole requested for his last day at 7 News This Morning anchor, but Chef Chris Manning decided to make him something better.
And Cole was happy, as long as it involved chicken and cheese.
Watch the video to see how it goes together. There's a surprise for Cole at the end.
