    1. Preheat grill and set the oven rack about 15cm from the heat source.
    2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; 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 blend.
    3. Scoop the avocados into a bowl and mash them with the lime juice, tomato, onion, garlic granules, salt and pepper.
    4. Spoon some guacamole onto each chicken breast, top with a slice of Cheddar cheese and grill for 2 to 4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

    Yum Yum! Tried this last night and its lovely. Depending on depth of your chicken breast you made need to cook a little longer. Great spicy taste, will be making again.  -  28 Mar 2012


    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!  -  10 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  27 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
