Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once heated add the chicken and season with salt, pepper, and half the Italian seasoning. Cook 8 minutes, then flip and season other side. Cook 8 minutes more. Remove chicken and place on a plate to let rest.
Add garlic to skillet and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, then add balsamic vinegar to de-glaze pan, scraping up brown bits with a wooden spoon. Add crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano and crushed red pepper flakes and stir until combined and warmed through, approximately 3 minutes.
Place chicken back in skillet in the sauce. Place 1 slice of mozzarella on top of each chicken breast and cover with a lid until melted. Garnish with parsley and serve. Serving with a side of Greek salad makes for a easy weeknight meal.
