Lighter Chicken Caprese with Avocado (Gluten-Free)


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tbsp. garlic and cilantro flavored balsamic vinegar (or plain)
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4" slices

Season both sides of the chicken breasts with a sprinkle of salt, pepper and garlic powder. 

Add oil to a large skillet and preheat to medium-high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until cooked through and light brown. Remove from heat and place on a baking sheet and top with aluminum foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken, if necessary.

Meanwhile, mix the tomatoes, avocado and balsamic vinegar together. Set aside.

Remove foil from chicken. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of Mozzarella. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. 

Remove chicken from oven. Top each slice with a spoonful of the tomato and avocado mixture. Serve immediately.
