I love avocados. Those three little words seem like the biggest understatement for how I truly feel about this delicious, green, buttery fruit.
I love anything and everything about them. Whether they are baked in cookies or cakes, served with cottage cheese, on a salad, or maybe even in stuffed into a chicken breast?  And what’s not to love about them? They are jam packed full of nutrients – mainly healthy monounsaturated fat (healthy fats!) and fiber.

Tonight I decided to stuff chicken breasts (because who doesn’t love stuffed chicken breast??) with an avocado tomato cream sauce. And… it … was… delightful!
 
Give it a try, avo-fan! And if you’re new to avocados, I bet you’re a fan once you try this dish!

    Hey! I was just wondering how well this re-heats!

    Hey Stefanie!

    I can’t say that I have ever reheated this item. Being that it’s avocado- and avocado tends to brown rather quickly, I can’t say it would. Once an avocado starts to oxidize (brown), it looses its taste. I would, however, recommend squirting lemon or lime juice over the top of each. The acidity of lemon/lime juice helps to significantly reduce the browning of avocados, thus retaining their flavor! I am sorry I couldn’t be much of help on your question! Hope it helped!
