Avocado Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by TheSimpleLife

This is an old recipe I have made for many years. The recipe may sound a little strange, but the acid from the tomato and the oil from the avocado contributes to the chicken's incredible baked-in moistness and tenderness.

I can't believe this hasn't been rated yet! This was such a great recipe! My husband doesn't like tomato, so I left that off of his, but still put it on mine. His chicken turned out dryer than mine did. The tomato really makes the chicken juicy. The ones without the tomato weren't too dry though, still good. I will definitely make these again...maybe add more ham though. DELICIOUS!
