Chicken Avocado Caprese Salad / #TasteCreations

Today we are celebrating Salads at the Taste Creations Blog Hop! This Chicken Avocado Caprese is one of my favorite salad combinations. It is full of flavor, with the moist chicken, juicy tomatoes, and creamy mozzarella. Add the yumminess of the avocados, and it is a salad worth your time! I say "worth your time" but it really is not that time consuming to make.  You simply pan fry a boneless, skinless chicken breast, slice some mozzarella, chop up a small avocado and your favorite lettuce, and drizzle on some Balsamic Glaze or your favorite dressing! You are ready to enjoy an incredible salad that you will want to make again and again!
