  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 freshley squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions
 

Chicken

  • Fillet the chicken breasts so you have 4 even pieces. Then, stab the chicken with a fork so they can soak up the marinade
  • In a large bowl, add the chicken, vinegar, oil and seasoning and mix until evenly coated. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  • Grill the chicken until each piece is cooked through (about 15 minutes while flipping halfway)

Salad

  • While the chicken in grilling, toast the pine nuts in a nonstick pan over medium to high heat. Toss frequently to avoid burning.
  • Add the mixed greens, chopped cucumbers, torn basil, avocado, freshly torn mozzarella, and tomato into salad bowls.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl, and whisk vigorously until well combined.
  • Slice and add the chicken to the salads, and top with the dressing. Enjoy!
