Spicy Chicken And Avocado

Hello all! Happy mid week! Today I have for you the other half of my South Beach friendly dinner from Monday night. This is a recipe from the Weight Watchers Five Ingredient 15 Minute Cookbook that just happened to also fit the South Beach Phase One requirements. It is very fast, simple, and only uses a few ingredients, most we already had so it was very convenient to make. Eating right is sometimes hard, so simple recipes make it much easier to do. I hope you enjoy it!

Seared Chicken With Avocado

   South Beach Diet Phase One


  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro 
  • the juice of 1 large or 2 small limes
  • 3/4 -1 pound of chicken breasts or chicken tenders
  •  blackening seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil for cooking
  • salt and pepper to taste


Chop the cilantro, jalapeno, and avocado and place in a bowl. Mix in the lime juice, slat, and pepper. Heat a skillet over medium to medium high heat and add the oil. Season both sides of the chicken with the blackening spice (I used a healthy amount because me and the Hubs like spice). Sear the chicken in the pan, about 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Serve the avocado mixture on top of the chicken and enjoy!
