California Grilled Chicken

When it comes to reliable dinners, grilled chicken tenders and chicken breasts and thighs are a staple in our weekly rotation. Along with being easy to whip up on the grill, chicken is endlessly versatile: they can take to a variety of flavors, seasonings, and toppings, so dinner never has to be boring. In this California version, our seasoned grilled chicken is topped with mozzarella, avocado, and tomato on the grill, resulting in a cheesy, flavor-packed main course. Top it with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and fresh basil, and you've got a fresh dinner on your hands in under an hour.
