We’ve arranged five quick and easy lunches to get back into the swing of things after a long morning hard at work.

We hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves

Preparation

  1. Combine balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a light boil and reduce by half, about 6-8 minutes; set aside and let cool.
  2. Next, heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  4. Add to skillet and cook, about 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Once cool, dice into bite-size pieces.
  5. For salad, place lettuce in a large bowl; top with chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, avocado and basil.
  6. Pour dressing from Step 1 on top of the salad and gently toss.
