Chicken Caprese Salad

Upgrade your lunchbox with this easy chicken salad inspired by the fresh flavors of summer. This meal is simple to prep ahead so you can enjoy it all week long. 

First you’ll poach diced chicken thighs in salted water. This results in beautifully juicy pieces of chicken. The chicken thighs’ dark meat adds to the layers of flavor in our salad. Next, you’ll incorporate some healthy fats in a creamy, flavorful dressing made from avocado, sour cream, and mayonnaise. A drizzle of white balsamic in the dressing adds a sweet kick. True to the caprese flavors, we add juicy cherry tomatoes, savory mozzarella pearls, and plenty of fresh basil. 

Enjoy this salad on its own, in a lettuce wrap, or atop a plate of greens. Make it your own by adding your choice of nuts or spices.
