Avocado Chicken Bites


I combined two of my favorite recipes to come up with this savory dish.

For the shell:

1 pound of ground chicken

1 egg

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp coriander

1/2 tsp salt

For the filling:

2 tbsp lime juice

1/2 tsp salt

2 avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and mashed

3 scallions

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1/4 tsp cumin

1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

For garnishment:

8 grape tomatoes, sliced

24 cilantro leaves

Combine the ingredients for the chicken shell and spoon mixture into a mini muffin pan (makes 24). Press down in the center of each cup and mold the chicken into a mini bowl.

Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.

While chicken is baking, combine the ingredients for the filling.

After the chicken is baked and slightly cooled fill each one with the avocado mixture and garnish with a slice of tomato and cilantro leaf.

It’s like a burst of heaven in your mouth in just one bite!!
