Yum-O is how I describe this meal. I was looking for something different (but not TOO different) and this hit the nail on the head. I served it with a salad of baby lettuces, blueberries, raspberries and sugared almonds dressed with Olive Garden’s Italian dressing and “cheese toasts” (pita bread brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and grilled until the cheese melted). Scrumptious!!!

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar

8 thin slices fresh mozzarella
8 thin slices avocado
8 thin slices tomato

In a measuring cup, whisk together first 7 ingredients.
Place chicken in a zip lock bag and pour balsamic mixture over. Seal well and marinate for 20i minutes up to 1 hour.
Heat grill to medium-high. Oil grates and grill chicken until cooked through – about 8 minutes per side.
