    I love this simple recipe! I've never had cooked avocado before, and it is yummy! This recipe is a keeper! I think more avocado would really enhance this dish.

    This was really yummy! Especially if you like avocados. I added more avocado, and therefore, more Caesar dressing to make it nice and creamy and to cover the chicken breasts really well. Easy and yummy.

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

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

    <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>

    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).
