Grilled Chicken Caprese with Avocado & Mango

Thursday, May 09, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

As you might have noticed we love eating our meals Caprese style.  We love tomato and mozzarella and thought we would add avocado and mango to the works, another favorite combo of ours!  Tonight we are firing up the grill pan (or grill, it's a little rainy here) and making a Grilled Chicken Caprese with Avocado & Mango.

We started off by grilling up thinly sliced red onion, tomatoes and chicken in olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic.  We then simply assembled our meal caprese style.  We stacked our chicken breast with grilled tomato, grilled red onion, roasted garlic and finally one tablespoon of reduced fat mozzarella cheese.  

We popped these chicken stacks in the oven to melt the cheese to gooey perfection.  We then chopped up a combination of fresh avocado and juicy mango and topped our chicken caprese with the two.  This is such a healthy meal and is loaded with fresh and delicious flavors!  Serve this with a veggie of your choice on the side and you have yourself a fulfilling and nutritious meal low in carbs and under 500 calories.  We choose our favorite, asparagus :)  

Hope you enjoy this one :)
