      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Chicken breasts
      • Avocado oil
      • Honey
      • Vegetables
      • Mozzarella cheese

      Chicken, avocado oil, and fresh vegetables are all natural, nutritious food sources. Include them in a variety of recipes for flavor, protein, and nutrients. 

      But what about mozzarella cheese? Is dairy healthy?

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture-raised cows and try to eat less. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Traditional caprese chicken recipes are made with brown sugar and served over wheat pasta (starchy carbs), which digest very similarly to sugar. 

      Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and a serving of pasta to this recipe, for a total of 45 to 50g of sugar, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.)

      Omit the brown sugar and pasta, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy.

      Caprese Chicken Tips

      Chicken Caprese Dinner Recipe! Gluten Free Baked Chicken.

      1. Add sides

      Feel free to enjoy this recipe on its own. Or, bulk up your meal by serving it with low-carb noodles, cauliflower rice, low carb zuppa toscana soup, or a lemon parmesan salad

      2. Meal prep

      Make a big batch of caprese chicken at once, and store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. Then, just warm them up in a skillet over medium heat for quick meals throughout the week! 

      3. Have leftover chicken? 

      Freeze it for later. Or, use it to make chicken marsala, marry me chicken, or chicken pot pie soup!   

      4. Grate the cheese

      For the best results, use a block of mozzarella cheese, and grate it yourself. It will have a bolder flavor and melt more easily, creating the gooey consistency we want. Also, know that pasture-raised cheeses always taste better (happy cows make for tasty cheese). 

      5. Use a meat thermometer

      Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken to ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit and is safe to eat.
