Avocado Stuffed Chicken Recipe

A plate of avocado stuffed chicken salad

Avocados have been a favorite fruit around healthy eaters. Although I don't have an avocado tree, my kitchen is usually always filled with avocados. Did you know that one medium avocado is 10 grams of fiber? Fiber makes you feel full, so this is great news. I have also noticed that my skin gets cleaner and feels nourished when I eat more avocados; since avocados contain vitamins C and E. 

So what's for dinner today? Chicken stuffed avocado. This superfood tastes great on its own but combine it with chicken for an incredible meal that's full of flavor. Chicken provides a great source of protein and is good for preventing skin disorders. The olive oil in this recipe will benefit your heart. Consuming olive oil protects against diabetes and keeps bones healthy.
