  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.

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 gre...

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.

I grilled these rather than pan frying & used monterey jack on mine(pepperjack on hubby's). We loved it & will def make again!!
