Step by step instructions

  1. Prepare the guacamole. Add one whole peeled and seeded avocado to a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Add salt, lime juice, cilantro and red onion, stir to combine, then set aside.
  2. Prepare the chicken breasts. Rub two chicken breasts with olive oil, then sprinkle the taco seasoning over both sides of the chicken breasts and gently rub the seasoning into the chicken.
  3. Stuff the chicken breasts. Slice a slit through the middle of the chicken breasts, making sure not to go all the way through. Stuff half of the guacamole into each chicken breast.
  4. Bake the chicken. Place the stuffed chicken breasts on a foil-lined baking sheet and into a 425°F preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Dig in! Remove the chicken from the oven and dig in!
    • Note: If some of the guacamole spills out of the chicken during the cooking process, it’s no problem! Just use a fork or spatula to scoop it up and back into the chicken breast before serving.

Side dishes to pair with the chicken

Now let’s talk sides! To go with the guacamole stuffed chicken, I prepared four different side dishes. Each dish is healthy, made with 5 ingredients or less and easily prepared while the chicken is baking!

  2. Season the vegetables. Toss the vegetables with O Organics olive oil, then taco seasoning.
  3. Roast the vegetables. Place the vegetables on a foil-lined baking sheet and into a 425°F oven for 15 minutes.

  1. Heat the rice. Place a pouch of O Organics brown rice in the microwave for 3-4 minutes.
    • Note: Using pre-cooked brown rice helps this side dish come together in just 5 minutes!
  2. Season the rice. Once the rice has cooled, open the pouch and transfer the cooked rice to a medium bowl. Add the lime juice and cilantro. I also recommend seasoning the rice with a little salt! Stir to combine everything and serve.
