Avocados are a great super-food to add to any meal. They’re rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, fiber, and vitamin E. Their flavor is mild, but adds a creamy texture to the chicken.
1 1/2 teaspoons blackened seasoning
4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 diced peeled avocado
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 lime, cut into fourths
Step 1: Sprinkle seasoning on both sides of chicken.
Step 2: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chicken to pan, smooth side down; cook 1 minute or until seared. Reduce heat to medium; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
Step 3: Combine avocado, cilantro, pepper, lime juice, and salt. Squeeze one-fourth lime over each piece of chicken before serving. Serve with avocado mixture.
