"This was really yummy. I served it with rice and baked mushrooms. Very simple, very yummy. I used chicken tenders."

MY REVIEW

"I might try using asparagus when baking & adding the avocado after it comes out of the oven."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2012

"<p>The recipe sounded good except for the avocados but I followed the recipe and it turned out very good. The best part is there is little prep time. Perfect for a week night. Serve with rice and dinner is served.</p>"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2012

"Wow - this was so simple and so yummy. I couldn't find fat-free casesar salad dressing, so I used "light". The avocados and the dressing give the chicken a smooth and creamy flavor. Perfect for guests (if they like avocados)."
