Transcript:Avocado-Stuffed ChickenHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I am going to show you how to make avocado-stuffed chicken.
Avocado-Stuffed Chicken IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 4 chicken breasts, pounded flat
- 2 avocados
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 cup fresh, minced basil leaves
- 1 large diced tomato
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
- pepper mill
Slice the AvocadosPreheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the avocados lengthwise all the way around. Twist the halves and using your knife, strike and remove the pit.
With a large spoon, scoop the avocado out of its peel. Then, with a small paring knife, slice the avocado lengthwise.
Make the Stuffing MixturePlace the slices in a mixing bowl. Add the lime juice, the pepper, the garlic powder, the minced basil, the diced tomato, and the chopped onion. Mix this all together.
Stuff the Chicken BreastsNext, lightly oil a baking dish with cooking spray. Now, lay a piece of chicken out on a flat surface.
Scoop out a spoonful of the mixture and lay it onto a chicken breast. Roll the meat over the mixture and tuck in the ends.
Place the stuffed chicken in the dish. Do this with all of the chicken; aim to use just about half of your avocado mixture. Then sprinkle the top of the chicken with the cracked peppercorns.
Bake the Avocado Stuffed ChickenPlace them in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. I like to serve this chicken with brown rice. Lay a piece of chicken against the rice and then spoon the more of the avocado mixture all around the chicken. Enjoy!
