"This recipe will kick your taste buds into high gear! The perfect blend of paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper will have your mouth buzzing with flavor and heat, but don't worry, the addition of the avocado and Greek yogurt cream sauce acts as a cooling agent for all that fire! The quinoa adds a gentle basic flavor to this intense dish and contributes a satisfying amount of nutritious fiber and protein to keep you and your family full and happy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
4 (4 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
non-stick cooking spray
Avocado Cream Sauce:
plain non-fat Greek-style yogurt
Made this last night and everyone loved it. My sauce ended up more like a guacamole texture, but I think that is because of the greek yogurt I used. I'll have to add something to make it thinner next time.
Amazing dish! I prepared it just like it says and even doubled the avocado sauce (which is really tasty) and couldn't be happier. I will definitely be making it again!
Pretty easy to make and super delicious. I made double the amount of creamy avocado sauce to have with some fresh veggies.
Very good! The blackened chicken was perfect with the avocado sauce. The sauce was a little strong the the lemon. The recipe is easy and I had all the ingredients in the cupboard. The sauce tastes best with the blackened chicken. The sauce goes a long way. Other flavored chicken doesn't accent the sauce as well as the blackened seasoning. (I did not make the quinoa in this recipe)
The chicken had a bland flavor but was still super spicy. Kids' mouths were burning. Cooking it with the lid on made it rubbery. Avocado cream sauce literally tastes like avocado flavored Greek yogurt. Sauce needed salt or more lemon juice or something. Will not make again.
Very good and quick. The only change I made was using olive oil instead of non stick spray.
delicious, but filled the kitchen with smoke... best done on a grill...
This was SO good. Very simple to make and had a nice kick to it. Will make it again for sure!
