California Grilled Chicken

Chicken has so many plus points - its versatility, as well as the ease and speed with which it can be cooked - make it one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium.

The pale flesh has a close texture and a mild flavour that pairs up well with many different ingredients. Never eat raw chicken, and always thoroughly wash your hands, utensils and cutting board as soon as you've cut or handled raw chicken.

This recipe suggestion for California Grilled Chicken combines lovely flavours and tastes great!

Serves Four
3/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 slices mozzarella
4 slices avocado
4 slices tomato
2 tbsp. sliced basil
balsamic glaze, for drizzling

1. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, honey, oil, and Italian seasoning and season with salt and pepper. Pour over chicken breasts and marinate 20 minutes.
2. Heat grill to medium high. Grill chicken until internal temperature reaches 170ºF on an instant-read thermometer
3. Top chicken with mozzarella, avocado, and tomato and cover grill to melt, 2 minutes.
4. Garnish with basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze.

...chicken well dressed.

That sounds very, very yummy indeed - I´ll try it in a pan with a lid to melt the cheese, though. If I get a ripe avocado, that is! Not an easy job over here, very sadly! At least I have super-yummy tomatoes :-)
The kitchen won´t stay cool tomorrow!

You've done well to mention chicken meat advantages: quality protein, vitamins and minerals. The above recipe is perfect (except for the mozarella as I don't mix meat with dairy) and the result - yummy (marinating always makes things better).

Nice and simple. Thanks Jan
I was going through some of the older recipes to print some for my husband to take with him as he's working away in Sydney and on his own and I came across a low carb Orange mousse. I made it for dinner and my husband loved it!

Lee said...

Now that does look and sound delicious. If I'd not already eaten....I'd be wanting it for my lunch! Maybe tomorrow! :)

Iris Flavia said...

By golly, Jan, yummy! I´ll even post a pic tomorrow :-)
