Directions

Mealthy Tip

Make these adorable boats vegetarian by substituting cubed sweet potato or tofu for the chicken, and sautéeing in a skillet until browned and tender. You could also try a poached egg in place of the chicken for a Mexican-inspired breakfast!

I am tickled by how clever this recipe is. I never considered putting meat inside a whole avocado, but it's a great idea. I am on a primal diet and have a hard time finding something to partner my meat with and this is such a great idea. I threw bacon inside of mine too because... bacon!

Where have these been all of my life??? I'm one of those millenials who will never be able to afford a house because I spend all of my money on avocados. I don't see that changing any time soon, especially now that I can make these crazy good avocado boats! YUM.

I made these for a casual get together at my house and they were a huge hit! They're really delicious, and healthy at the same time. I love the seasonings used for the chicken, especially the cumin and lime juice. This is definitely one of my favorite, new dishes to make.

These chicken avocado boats were delicious. I used shredded chicken instead of cubed, and it turned out really good. It was full of spice and flavor, and accented the creamy avocado nicely.

I thought this was a cool idea but instead of stuffing the avocado with cubed chicken, I used shredded chicken. This is one of my favorite lunch recipes. I also skipped the cheese, trying to stay dairy free!
