Directions

  1. Preheat oven broiler, and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the chicken breasts for about 10 minutes per side until no longer pink on the inside and golden brown on the outside, sprinkling each side with Creole seasoning.
  3. Scoop the avocados into a bowl, and mash them with the lime juice, tomato, onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spoon about 1/3 cup of guacamole onto each chicken breast, top with a slice of pepper jack cheese, and broil for 2 to 4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

This was so easy and so delicious! I loved it, my family loved it! I didn't know what to think about putting guacamole on top of chicken, but then couldn't believe the wonderful flavor it added. I will be making this again and again!

This was okay but not something I will ever make again. I really felt it didn't have much flavor and the tastes just didn't mesh. I'm giving it 3 stars because my boyfriend liked it and it was pretty simple. Thanks for the recipe anyways.

With a slight modification I made chicken guacamole muffins that are AMAZING! I poached and shredded 3 split chicken breasts instead of pan-frying. I then scooped the chicken into a lightly greased muffin tin, covering with guac mix + cheese and broiled for 3 min. I haven't tried yet, but suspect this will also make amazing chicken nachos. Overall this significantly reduces calories by removing butter + olive oil (340 cal) and increasing the portion yield to 6. Enjoy!

This was easy to prepare and turned out great. Hubby thought it was very tasty. I reduced the butter and oil which worked out fine.Otherwise, I made no changes to the recipe.

This was very good, my husband loved it. I used store bought guacamole and it was just as good

I try to avoid butter and frying, so I marinated the chicken breasts in olive oil and fresh garlic for a couple of hours and then grilled them on the BBQ. Sansel Red Garlic from Epicure is a great addition to the guacamole instead of just garlic powder. (Most stores have a similar version if you don’t have Epicure.) I left the guacamole chunky. Did everything else as indicated. Turned out picture perfect and delicious.

Pretty good. The quality of the guacamole matters to this dish! I made my own guacamole and substituted the pepper jack cheese to a "Mexican" blend shredded cheese.
