Chicken Caprese (Recipe)


✅ 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

✅ 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

✅ 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish

✅ ½ avocado, diced

✅ 2 cloves garlic, grated

✅ ½ teaspoon ground pepper
✅ ¼ teaspoon salt

✅ 1 pound chicken cutlets/breast/or thighs (your preference)

✅ 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

✅ 1 small tomato, thinly sliced


1️⃣ Preheat grill to medium-high or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

2️⃣ Combine oil, 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze, basil, garlic, pepper and salt in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on both sides of chicken.

3️⃣ Oil the grill rack or pan. Grill the chicken until it easily releases from the grill or pan, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and top with mozzarella and tomato. Grill until the cheese is melted and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken registers 165°F, 3 to 4 minutes more. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze and sprinkle with more basil, if desired.
