Recipe: Blackened Chicken with Avocado Cream Sauce
Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving size: 4-ounce chicken breast and 2 tablespoons cream sauce

Ingredients

4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons blackened seasoning

Avocado Cream Sauce:

½ cup plain, 0% Greek yogurt

½ avocado

1 teaspoon lemon juice

½ teaspoon garlic powder

⅛ teaspoon salt

For Serving:

2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced

Instructions

Place the chicken breasts and blackened seasoning in a large resealable bag. Seal and shake a few times to evenly coat the chicken.

Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the yogurt, avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt and pulse until smooth and creamy.

To serve, top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the creamy avocado sauce and garnish with ½ tablespoon green onions.
