This has to be my favorite chicken breast recipe.  When I met my hubs he introduced me to grilled Monterey chicken at one of his favorite hole in the wall restaurants.  Lucky for him I am pretty descent in the kitchen especially when it comes to winging it.  If you like to grill outside on a pit this is a fun one.  I even opt to making this easy grilled Pollo Monterey chicken recipe with my cast iron skillet.  Both are just as simple.

Ingredients
  • Chicken breasts – butterfly
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado – thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato – thinly sliced
  • mozzarella – slices I take one slice and cut it in 4 strips (depending on chicken breast size I add 3-4 on each
  • 1/4 stick of butter (only if you are pan frying)
Instructions
  1. Season chicken breast with salt & pepper. If you like a kick to your food use what ever spices you choose. These have to be kid friendly in our house so I opt for salt and pepper only.
  2. Cook on medium flame 8-10 minutes each side.
  3. The last 2 minutes of the cooked side add a layer of tomatoes, a layer of avocado slices and mozzarella generously. Let the cheese melt and your done.
