    Perfectly delicious! I've prepared this twice now. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly and we loved the flavor and I loved the fast cook time. The second time, I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so substituted chopped sun dried tomatoes. Another winner! Served this with recipe #286193 and rice. Thanks for a super flavorful and fast recipe.

    YUM! I loved this recipe! I had a meal like this at a restaurant in Austin, but was afraid to try to copy it. This was so close to the meal I loved and so easy to make. It was even better with garden-fresh tomatoes. Thanks!

    This is YUMMY!!!! Very easy to make too. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts. I generally do not microwave chicken because it sometimes dries it out but these came out nice and moist. The flavors blended very well. I wasn't sure how the avocado and tomato slices would be after they were microwaved but they were good. They were not mushy like I thought they would be. Since chicken thighs are smaller than breasts, I only used one slice of tomato on each thigh. Plus my tomato was more of a medium sized. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks for a great recipe Judy!!! It is a winner and a keeper!
