Garlic, Basil and Avocado Chicken & Italian Inspired Aprons

My recipe for my garlic and basil avocado chicken is a brand new one that was inspired by a restaurant that opened up the street.  The restaurant does a garlic aioli on top of it, you could do a garlic mayo, but to be honest, when you modify it and make it the way that I do, there is absolutely no need to top it with this.  Before I give you this amazing recipe for garlic, basil and avocado chicken, I’d like to share two aprons with you that are Italian inspired.  Remember, by click through the links and shopping without using a coupon code I can earn a commission and keep this blog running with new recipes.  These Italian inspired aprons make great gifts for the holidays or just thinking of you.  If you know someone who might want one, you want to find a ton of other Italian designer aprons or that at least look Italian inspired, click through and buy something.

I don’t know why this pattern and print makes me think Italian, but for some reason when I see it I think of Naples or wine he country (even though the entire country is wine country).  I can easily see an Italian woman in the 50’s wearing this print or even from the 30’s, 60’s and possibly the 80’s because of the bold lines.  The pink flowers with the green accents make this gorgeous Italian floral apron for women a great gift for people who like vintage looks but with modern designs and cuts.

I don’t know why I love this one, but it reminds me of an old vintage or even antique and classic Italian pattern.  The gorgeous colors and flowers accent the three rows of ruffles and I love the ties around the neck.  The circular pocket with the bow on the front right hip looks classic and designer with an old world feel and modern twist.  If you’re looking for a vintage Italian floral apron without wanting a dirty, used piece of fabric.  This gorgeous design is available and usually on sale.  Click the image above or the link next to the price.

Garlic, Basil and Avocado Chicken recipe.

This is one of the easiest and most amazing sandwiches you can make.  You can also serve it as a dinner or any other way you want.  Normally I cut the chicken straight through into pieces and then pile it on the bun when I serve it as a sandwich, but because I wanted to show you what it looks like with the breast in tact for dinner I placed the breasts sliced on the buns.  If you do make a garlic aioli or mayo, you can place it on the bun.

What you need:

  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Vine ripened tomatoe (small works great)
  • Basil
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • A few cloves of garlic

Take your extra virgin olive oil and pour some in a pan.  Now take your chicken breasts and lay them in the olive oil so just the bottom of the breasts are covered.  Take a pinch of salt and throw it over each breast.  Now throw a pinch of pepper on each breast.  Next take a sharp knife and slice the breasts almost down to the bottom.  Let this start to cook on medium heat.

Now puree or chop your basil and mince or chop your garlic and mix them together.  take this combination and carefully rub it on the chicken breast and try to push it into the slices so everything has a ton of flavor.  Now cover the pan with a lid and let it cook.  While the chicken is cooking, slice a tomato, scoop out your avocado and slice it.  Arrange the avocado and tomato on a plate or place them on the top part of the bun or bread you are serving the chicken on.  When the chicken is done cooking, either place it on the bread or slice it through the rest of the way on a cutting board and line it up on the bread so it is easier to eat.  Place the avocado and tomato on it and serve.

This is one of the easiest things to make.  The first thing to do is to cook bacon into strips.  Now cook your eggs.  You can do three sunnyside up (eating raw or under cooked foods can be very dangerous so do this at your own risk) or scrambled.  Now, create the diamond shape (you can break and lay the pieces out or wrap the edges of the bacon together so that they cook and stick in this shape.  You do have to be careful they don’t shrink as much and come apart so it can be tricky.  Next cook your eggs.

If you do scrambled you are good to go.  Just put the scrambled eggs inside the diamond.  If you go sunnyside up, try to make them inside a smaller frying pan that is about the same size as the inside of the diamond.  Now take the sunnyside up eggs and place them inside the diamond.  Now create the S out of pieces of bacon or wrap pieces together so that when you cook them they will cook in an S.  Bacon shrinks so you want to make sure it starts out large enough so it can cover the diamond and not break apart.  Now if you did sunnyside up, break the yolks and the yellow should fill in underneath the bacon creating a cook looking emblem.  If you used scrambled then you just need to fill in the gaps.  Now you can outline the bacon in hot sauce or ketchup if you want more of a line and you are ready to serve a breakfast fit for a superhero.
