Avocado Chicken



I love avocado.

I used to hate the stuff, but after Bubba was born I really took to it all of a sudden...weird.

This came up last week on my eMeals weekly dinner plan, and I made it a couple days later. It was so easy and tasty...even Hubby remarked how good it was, which I wasn't expecting since he's not really an avocado OR tomato kinda guy.

Plus...it's healthy. Very healthy. Avocados are so good for you, and when you top it with a tomato and a bit of melted cheese...even better :)

  3. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I was looking for a new way to make chicken for dinner last night and I found your recipe. I had just bought avocados and tomatoes at Costco the day before so this was perfect. So easy, simple yet delicious.
