Avocado Caprese Skillet Chicken Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic glaze (I use Bertolli)
  • 4 avocado slices (from large but ripe avocados)
  • 1/3 cup of chopped basil ribbons
  • 2 (10 – 11 ounces each) boneless skinless chicken breast, buttered and halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion
  • 1/2 tsp Italian spice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ounces of fresh mozzarella, cut into 8 slices
  • 2 medium cooked tomatoes, sliced


  1. In a bowl, mix garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Apply dry chicken with tissue paper then sprinkle the mixture evenly on both sides of each piece of chicken meat. Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add chicken (cover pan with splatter screen if available) and cook until golden brown, about 4 – 6 minutes.
  4. Turn and cook the opposite side until the chicken is almost cooked (around 160 in the middle), reduce the temperature slightly if needed, about 4-5 minutes.
  5. Add two slices of mozzarella to each slice of meat, followed by one slice of avocado, and 1-2 slices of tomatoes.
  6. Cover the pan with a lid, return to heat and let it cook 1 – 2 minutes longer until the cheese melts and the chicken goes in the middle.
  7. Sprinkle chicken with pepper, drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve warm.
