|Easy Chicken Avocado Recipe.|
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken* breasts
salt and pepper
1 t. Italian seasoning
1/2 t. basil
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 T. olive oil
2 avocado, peeled and sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
3 mozzarella cheese balls, sliced
*3 T. balsamic glaze
1. Place the chicken breasts between layers of plastic wrap. Pound them to a consistent thickness with the side of a meat tenderizer.
2. Season each side the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste.
3. Mix the Italian seasoning, basil and garlic powder in a small bowl.
4. Coat each side of the chicken with the combined spices.
5. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts. Cook until the chicken is browned, approx. 5 minutes. Turn over chicken and continue cooking until the inside temperature reaches 160 degrees F, approx. 5 minutes.
6. Top the chicken with slices of mozzarella cheese, tomato, and avocado. Cover the skillet. Continue cooking until the cheese melts and chicken reaches 165 degrees F.
7. Remove the chicken from the skillet and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
* I did not have balsamic glaze. It is fairly easy to make. Add approx. 1/2 c. balsamic vinegar to a small pot. Bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking until the vinegar reduces to desired consistency.
