I have a feeling this salad is going to be your next favorite salad, because who doesn’t love Balsamic Chicken AND Caprese ? Say hello, friend!



  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 4 chicken thigh fillets, skin removed (no bone)*

  • 5 cups Romaine, (or cos) lettuce leaves, washed and dried

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced

  • 1/2 cup mini mozzarella / bocconcini cheese balls

  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, thinly sliced

  • Salt and pepper, to season

Now how to make the chicken avocado caprese salad....

First, we have to marinate the chicken:

  • You'll only need to use 4 tablespoons of the balsamic marinade - save the remaining dressing to use later in the refrigerator!

  • Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Place chicken into a shallow dish; pour 4 tablespoons of the dressing / marinade onto the chicken and stir around to evenly coat chicken. Reserve the untouched marinade to use as a dressing.

Next we cook:

  • Heat about one teaspoon of oil in a large grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat and grill or sear chicken fillets on each side until golden, crispy and cooked through. We love a good chicken breast but thighs work just as well. Once chicken is cooked, set aside and allow to rest.

Now combine and EAT!

  • Prepare the salad with lettuce, avocado slices, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. Slice the chicken into strips and add to salad. Top it all off with some basil strips; drizzle with the remaining dressing; season with salt and pepper; serve.
