  • Cusine



2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, butterflied and halved

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 Tbsp olive oil

6 oz fresh mozzarella

4 avocado slices

2 medium vine ripened tomatoes

3 Tbsp balsamic glaze

1/3 cup chopped basil ribbons


In a bowl mix together garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Dab chicken dry with paper towels then sprinkle mixture evenly over both sides of each chicken cutlet. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown on bottom, about 4 - 6 minutes. Rotate and cook opposite side until chicken has nearly cooked though , reducing burner temperature just slightly if needed, about 4 - 5 minutes. Add two slices of mozzarella to the top each cutlet, followed by one avocado slice, and 1 - 2 tomato slices. Cover pan with lid, return to heat and allow to cook 1 - 2 minutes longer until cheese has melted and chicken registers 165 in center. Sprinkle chicken with pepper, drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve warm.
