Avocado filled with Cajun Chicken : Just right for a lovely lunch

Love them or hate them ... and I love them, avocados are just so good ... and this recipe idea for stuffed avocados is great for those with a busy lifestyle... well even if your lifestyle is not busy they are still great!

Avocados are nutritious, low in carbs and ready in just a few minutes!

If you'd like to read twenty good reasons to love avocados then have a read here ... but back to the recipe ...

This is what you need:
Serves Two

1 extra large or 2 medium avocados (300 g / 10.6 oz)
210g / 7.4 oz cooked chicken
58g / 2oz mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream or cream cheese
1 tsp thyme, dried
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp salt (or slightly more) to taste 

This is what you do:
1. Cut or shred the cooked chicken into small pieces.
2. Add the mayo, sour cream (or cream cheese), thyme, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper... lemon juice and season with salt to taste.
3. Combine well.
4. Scoop the middle of the avocado out leaving ½ - 1 inch of the avocado flesh. 5. Cut the scooped avocado into small pieces. Place the chopped avocado into the bowl with the chicken and mix until well combined.
6. Fill each avocado half with the chicken & avocado mixture.
7. Serve and enjoy!

Hope the table is ready!

I don't like avocado but I love cajun chicken, yum yum. Mondays seem to come round so quickly, the start of another week, hope it's a good one.

Hello, I love just about anything with avocado. Looks like a pretty spot for lunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

I never used to be a fan of avocados, but tastes change, and I do enjoy them with sandwiches, and of course, guacamole! Chicken salad is one of my favorites, so this combo sounds perfect.

i have done this with regular chicken salad, a hollwed cucumber works well also for a no bread option!!!

I keep thinking if I just fix an avocado in the right way I will love it. I just can't seem to hit on the right combination. Maybe this recipe will make me an avocado fan.
