This comes together quickly and is a wonderful dinner paired with a good rice dish and a green salad. Note that the recipe calls for the chicken breasts to be steamed before baking. I just put them in a large steamer basket and cooked them for about 15 minutes while I was getting the rest of the recipe ready to bake. Just make it again last night and it is still excellent! 10/2011

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Steam the chicken breasts until tender. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter until foamy, stir in flour and cook for 3 minutes. Slowly add the cream and chicken stock, stirring until smooth and thickened. Season with the salt, pepper, Parmesan, Tabasco, and herbs. Set aside.
  2. Saute mushrooms in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Place the chicken in a 2-quart casserole and top with mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over and bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with almonds. Return to oven for 10 minutes. Peel and slice avocados lengthwise. Place over casserole before serving.
