Chicken Stuffed Avocado

Healthy dinners that aren’t salads and don’t taste bad are pretty hard to come by… but this one is a rare gem! Inspired by a recipe I saw for tuna stuffed avocados, and having leftover chicken on hand, this recipe is very quick to put together, and tastes light, fresh and zesty – perfect for the end of summer!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started.


Prep Time: 15 Minutes    Yields: 2 Avocado halves


1 Large Hass Avocado

2 Tbs. Fresh Chopped Cilantro

2 Tbs. Chopped Red Onion

Juic of 1 Lime

7 Cherry Tomatoes

Dash Paprika

1/2 Tsp. Salt (or to taste)

1/2 Tsp. Pepper (or to taste)

1)Begin by washing and slicing your avocado in half and removing the pit. Remove any brown spots. You are free to scoop a little of the avocado out to make the well larger, but after taking out the brown, my space was large enough. Season your avocado halves with a little salt, pepper, and paprika. I use the Smoked Sweet Paprika from William-Sonoma. YUM!

2) Time for some prep work, so get the cutting board out! Slice up your leftover chicken into bite-size cubes, dice your red opinion, half the cherry tomatoes, and rough-chop your cilantro and place it in a bowl. (You can use grilled chicken, pan-fried, whatever you have handy! Obviously, to keep it healthy grilled is the best option. 🙂 )

3) In a separate dish, or over the bowl if you aren’t scared of the seeds going in, juice your lime. Give it a few rolls on the counter before slicing and squeezing to help extract more juice.

3) Next, add in your olive oil, and lime juice if it is in a separate bowl.

4) Add your 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper and a little more paprika. Gently mix it all up!

5) Scoop your filling into the avocado halves, and if you have any lime juice left, give it a few squeezes right on the top! VOILA! Tasty and great looking, healthy meal in no time!

Enjoy! 🙂
