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!

4 Slices Fresh Mozzarella Cheese 
5-6 Fresh Mozzarella Balls
Balsamic Glaze {link to the recipe and ingredients below}


Mix the Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the Mrs. Dash Italian Medley in a measuring cup.
Place the chicken breasts and the EVOO and Italian Mix together in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Spray a frying pan with pan spray, and cook chicken until done.

 Chop and wash the lettuce. Place on a plate. 

Slice the chicken, and place it on the plate on top of the lettuce. Chop the avocado and place it to the side of the chicken. Add the mozzarella slices to the other side of the chicken. Place sliced and whole grape tomatoes on the plate. Add small mozzarella cheese balls to plate. Drizzle with Balsamic Glaze.

Chicken Street Tacos / #SundaySupper

I think you are going to love these Chicken Street Tacos! They are easy to make, and even though the ingredient list is long, you probably have most of the items in your pantry already! I like this recipe because although I wrote this post as if you are making a plate of tacos, it would also work if you wanted to serve the tacos as a buffet with everyone making their own. It would be a bit easier on the hostess, too!
Any way you want to serve these, they will be a favorite with your friends and family, and perfect for celebrating Cinco de Mayo! Enjoy!
Chicken Street Tacos 
(printable recipe at end of page)

1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Fresh Lime
1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1 cup Orange Juice
1 Fresh Lime
1 small white Onion
small Flour or Corn Tortillas
1 teaspoon Butter
Minced Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1 Fresh Corn on the Cob
1 teaspoon Butter
Salt and Pepper
Salsa
Avocado
Cilantro
Queso Fresco 
Lettuce to garnish plate

Make the homemade Crema first. You can buy this at the store if you don't want to make it, but it tastes really great when it is homemade. Whisk together the sour cream and whipping cream until it is smooth. Add the juice from a fresh lime and whisk together. Cover with plastic and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Cut your chicken breasts to any size pieces you want. We will be shredding them later. Place in a pan and add the orange juice and the juice from a fresh lime. Refrigerate for 1 hour-1 1/2 hour. 
 Dice onions and set aside.
 Grill tortillas on grill. Set aside. You can also heat them in the oven or microwave.
When the time is up, heat a frying pan with butter and add the minced garlic. Sprinkle the cumin on both sides of each piece of chicken and place in the pan to cook on medium high. Turn when necessary until golden brown. Throw the marinade away. Remove from pan and let cool.
Place the cut corn in a frying pan with butter. Add salt and pepper to corn and fry on medium high heat until cooked.
As soon as the chicken has cooled enough to handle it, start shredding it apart.
Start building your street tacos. Place chicken on the taco and add onion, corn, cheese, salsa, crema, avocado. 
These Chicken Street Tacos taste great with the added taste of a shredded cilantro leaf, and a squeeze of fresh lime!

Inside Out BBQ Ribs Grilled Cheese / #SundaySupper

Today, I have a sandwich for you that I think you will really love!! Inside Out BBQ Ribs Grilled Cheese! You may be asking yourself, "What in the world is an Inside Out Grilled Cheese?" Well, I wasn't too sure myself, but when my husband learned that we were talking grilled cheese today for Sunday Supper, he told me about an Inside Out Grilled Cheese he saw on a cooking show. Basically, one side of the bread is buttered, and grilled, just like the grilled cheese we grew up with. The difference comes when you put the sandwich together. The toasted side of the bread goes on the inside, making the outside of the sandwich soft and gentle on your mouth! No scrapes on the roof of your mouth. But, you still get that great grilled cheese flavor!
I thought this was a great idea! I concocted this sandwich using leftover ribs and cole slaw. Who says leftovers can't be new again?! This was a tasty and fun way to use up some of them! Hope you enjoy this sandwich!!

Inside Out BBQ Ribs Grilled Cheese
(makes 2 sandwiches)
(printable recipe at end of post)

5 Cooked BBQ Ribs
1/4 -1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
6-7 Onion Slices 
1/2 loaf Italian Bread
 2 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Cole Slaw
French Fries






Five rib bones will make enough meat for 2 sandwiches.
Pull the meat off the bones. I heated the bones in the microwave and cut the meat off with a knife. It came off easily.

Chop up the rib meat into smaller than bite size pieces.
Heat the BBQ sauce in a pan, and add the chopped rib meat to heat.
Saute a few onion slices in a frying pan.
Cut 2, 3/4" wide pieces per sandwich from a loaf of Italian bread. This bread gave the sandwich a fantastic flavor. You could also use your favorite bread.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a frying pan. Place bread down on the butter and grill it until the butter browns the bread.
Remove bread from pan, and place on baking sheet. Cover with cheese.
Broil in oven until cheese is melted.
Build your sandwich by placing the cheese side up. On one side place the cole slaw. On the other side top the cheese with BBQ and onions.
Add french fries and a some extra sauce. Enjoy!
