DIRECTIONS

  • Note: I served this dish with brown rice. If that's what you choose I recommend starting the chicken and rice at the same time as they both take ~40 minutes to cook. Another alternative to cooking it separately is to bake the dish with the rice - add extra salsa for moisture.
  • Combine avocado, tomato, garlic, vinegar and lime juice in small bowl. Season to taste (~1/8 tsp cumin, dash of salt, dash of pepper).
  • Slice chicken lengthwise, leaving some in-tact at the ends (like a pita), or slice in half lengthwise and tenderize.
  • Stuff liberally with guacamole, or wrap tenderized chicken around guacamole and hold with a toothpick.
  • Place chicken in glass baking dish, cover with salsa.
  • Scatter cheese on top (If you prefer melted cheese instead of crispy, add 10 minutes before removing chicken from the oven).
  • Bake at 450 F for 40 - 45 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked. Chicken should cool slightly before being served.
