If you are trying to eat clean or healthy, you may be bored with chicken. Throw in some Avocado and special seasonings, and you have one winning and easy Chicken Week Night Dish!

My husband gave this dish 2 thumbs up not only on the chicken and avocado topping, but gave me one heck of a cute smirk when he realized he was in love with…don’t say it!…Kale Chips.

Pinterest has been such a useful tool in finding healthy recipes for our family, and just say Avocado and I’m there! Without further adieu, here are the Recipes for Both Seared Avocado & Cilantro Chicken, plus Kale Chips.

I prepared the Kale Chips first, so be sure to preheat your oven to 350 Degrees.
