That’s when I remembered my Avocado Egg Rolls and their delicious avocado filling… I knew that would be PERFECT inside chicken and I was totally right!

Season your chicken breast with a blend of pantry seasonings and make a pocket on the side of each breast to hold the avocado filing.

I was strolling through the grocery store when I stumbled upon the spice aisle and found these seasoning blends from McCormick. I love picking up a seasoning blend that combines my go-to spices, and this one had it all. It’s their new “All Purpose Seasoning” blend with Himalayan Pink Salt, Black Pepper and Garlic.

MY OTHER RECIPES

It also includes onion, red bell pepper, lemon peel and parsley. Pretty much everything I would have used to season this chicken, so I picked up it up to use and it’s perfect! If you can’t find the seasoning blend, don’t worry, I’ll leave the amounts of what you can substitute it with in the notes of the recipe card below.

The filling for these super easy chicken breasts is diced avocado, sun dried tomatoes, cilantro and a little bit of salt! So easy and seriously so good!

Avocado Stuffed Chicken Breasts Filling

The filling for the chicken breasts includes diced avocado, chopped sun dried tomatoes (I recommend using the kind that are packed in oil so they’re more soft), a little cilantro and a touch of salt.

Toss it all together then stuff each chicken breast with the filling and secure it with a few toothpicks.

Heat up a large cast iron skillet with some olive oil inside and sear the chicken on each side for about 3 minutes, until they’re golden brown. Then cover with aluminum foil and finish cooking in the oven.

Let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before uncovering and enjoying. Make sure you don’t forget to remove the toothpicks!

My avocado-loving family went BONKERS for this recipe! I even saved one for leftovers the next day and sliced it cold and served it on top of a green salad. It was amazing with my Tomatillo Ranch Dressing on top!

Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts
  • All Purpose Seasoning Blend (see notes)
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomato strips in oil, drained and diced
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 to 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Use a sharp knife to slice a pocket into the side of each chicken breast. Use the seasoning blend to season both sides of the chicken breasts.
  3. In a small bowl combine the diced avocado, sun dried tomatoes, cilantro and salt. Divide the mixture between the chicken breasts and secure the pockets closed with toothpicks if desired.
  4. Heat a large cast iron (or oven safe) skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil to the pan and when hot, sear the chicken on both sides for about 3 minutes, until golden brown. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes, until chicken reaches internal temperature of 155 degrees. Remove from oven and keep covered for 5 minutes before removing toothpicks and enjoying.

Notes

For the seasoning blend combine: 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp dried parsley, 1 tsp lemon zest. (OR you can use McCormick's All Purpose Seasoning Himalayan Pink Salt)
