Chicken Mozzarella with Avocado

This is a twist from Chicken Parmesan. Crispy crusty chicken, tomato & basil sauce, avocado slices & melted mozzarella. The chicken was so easy to put together & I loved the avocado with the marinara! This dish is also very appealing to look at as well as to eat. Not too bad for you either, maybe just substitute the pasta with a salad.
