    Delicious, I will definitely keep this on my regular meal list.Easy to prepare, (other than the gathering/prep of the fresh basil - but oh what a worthwhile endeavour), sooo tasty! Thank you, Vino Girl :)

    Good recipe and really healthy. My chicken was done quicker than the 45 minutes but I was using smaller pieces. This would be a good recipe for anyone watching there sodium intake because it's so flavorful and doesn't call for added salt. I served it with brown rice pilaf and and carrots.

    Avocado Chicken is my kind of comfort food! No gluten, no sugar, and not deep fried! I can enjoy scrumptious food with this recipe. The tang of acid with avocado and lean chicken is wonderful. I would pair this with a comfort glass of Cremant D'Alsace.

    Yummy, yummy in my tummy. We enjoy chicken/avocado recipes and especially liked the flavours in this one. The only change I made was that I browned the rolled chicken pieces in a skillet on each side. Then I baked for only 35 mins. I served them with mediterranean lemon pepper rice, thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Just made this for dinner tonight and everyone really liked it! Very fresh and easy to make. I cut 2 chicken breasts in half and pounded out to make 4 servings. A whole chicken breast just seemed too large for us. And it was the perfect portion! I will definitely be making this one again!! My chicken was also cooked faster than 45 minutes. I did cook it in the convection oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. It was delicious! Thanks for a great weeknight easy and delicious meal recipe!


I am lucky enough to be "living the good life". I have the most wonderful husband and two terrific teenage daughters. We reside in Central Pennsylvania where we have the luck of having four full seasons. Between my husband and myself, we have two full time jobs, three businesses and one part time job. We are very busy, but try to take it easy when we can and enjoy the wonderful life we have been blessed with. Future plans include moving to an inherited 45 acre farm in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This will occur if and when our DD's leave the nest. We love to travel and have enjoyed seeing all of North America and a large portion of the United States together. Since discovering Zaar, I have to say my life has become more flavorful! I have learned that it's easier than I thought to have an organized, well-planned and yet creative and fun kitchen! I love the features of Zaar, but especially enjoy the people. I have become addicted to the forums and now love taking photos of the food I prepare. I am officially a Zaar junky! I've also started taking pictures of most of the recipes I prepare...Here are some of the pics I've taken of dishes that are available at Zaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://w155.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w155.photobucket.com/albums/s305/jonesies/442caae0.pbw" height="360" width="480"><a href="http://i155.photobucket.com/redirect/album?action=slideshow&landing=/slideshows&type=3" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="http://s155.photobucket.com/albums/s305/jonesies/?action=view¤t=442caae0.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/slideshows/btn_viewallimages.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> I love most foods. My only dislikes are green peppers and coffee...weird, huh? Been trying to eat and cook healthier for the children and to help control DH's high cholesterol. I enjoy...no...CRAVE anything cheesy, salty and crunchy. Needless to say I dream about nachos in my sleep! <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/cheesesticker.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/L%5B1%5D.F-stickJPEG.jpg"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view&current=tish3.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish3.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
