Chicken- Mozzarella Melt with Shredded Cabbage Salad

Hello Everybody...Happy Monday!
Today is raining here again..what a strange winter! Instead of snow that we had just a dust last week, today we are having rain. It's not even that cold, I would compare the weather like ending of Autumn. To cut the weather story short because I can talk about weather forever...let's start with a today's meal idea. My kids love chicken and cheese but to get them to eat veggies take some convincing. However when you put many different colors on the plate they will try it, at least mine do. The taste is not bad, not bad at all. You have sweet, spicy, salty and sour.. bit of comfort and whole lot of healthy. It is balanced plate with little bit of everything. 




Serves 2
Ingredients:
2 Pieces of Chicken Tenders
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
2 Slices Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese
Salad:
2 cups of Cabbage, shredded
5 radishes, shredded
7 Golden tomatoes, slice in half
1/4 Apple, shredded
Pinch of Sea Salt, freshly ground
1 Tbs. Garlic Vinaigrette Dressing with herbs
Bread:
Homemade Half Whole wheat Bread- Recipe 
Spread:
Fat Free Cream Cheese 
Garnish:
Chopped Parsley


Chicken- Mozzarella Melt with Shredded Cabbage Salad


Directions:

  1. First Shred all the ingredients for the salad and slice tomatoes in half.
  2. Stir in the Vinaigrette; set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan and season the chicken tenders, cook on a med. high for few minutes on each side. 
  4. Once the chicken is done, turn the heat off, place on top piece of Mozzarella and cover it with a lid removing the pan from the burner completely.
  5. The heat will melt the cheese. 
  6. Cut the bread, spread with a cream cheese and place the chicken on top. 
  7. Serve immediately or prepare everything ahead of time. 
Final thought:
This is very simple, full of flavor, and it goes very well together. 
Salad is unique. Apple and tomatoes give this salad sweetness, and Garlic Vinaigrette just a kick of flavor.
