Chicken and avocado are two of the healthiest foods you can choose in your diet. But let’s be honest, they can be a little bland and get boring after a while. These are two foods that we almost always have in our household, so I pride myself in finding different ways of making them so as not to get jaded by another chicken dish. This meal is kind of a combination of my Classic Chicken Salad and Simple Guacamole recipes blending to make one delicious super salad.
Since one of the main ingredients in this dish is chicken, it’s important to take a little time to make sure you bake it to perfection. I’ve had a lot of trial and error when it comes to baking chicken, but I’ve finally found a method that yields juicy, flavorful results. Brine the chicken for about 15 minutes. This pretty much means submerging the chicken breasts in water with about one tablespoon of salt. Next, remove from water, pat dry, and rub each chicken with your choice of oil (olive oil is my go-to). Sprinkle with salt and pepper then place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees and 30 minutes later, you’ll be rather impressed with yourself.
I chose to keep the seasoning simple with just lemon, salt and pepper to stick with the “refreshing” theme I was going for. But if you’re feeling adventurous, I encourage you to go crazy! Add a little jalapeno, red pepper, etc. Serving this on a whole wheat tortilla with some shredded cheese will make for a wonderfully healthy and filling meal. Enjoy! 🥑 🍗 🥗 🥕 🌽
