Chicken avocado is a match made in paradise. Generally served in a plate of mixed greens arrangement, here I offer it’s more youthful, more sultry kin you’ve all been cautioned about – chicken avocado pasta.

As you can see by the heart formed dish, I typically do this formula for night out. It’s simple, it’s carby and extraordinary to cook two by two. Notwithstanding, it additionally works extraordinary as a generous family supper.

These truly are the unmistakable advantage to this dish. An exquisite explosion of pleasantness and some decent shading contrast. They mass out the pasta as well, which is incredible in case you’re picking to leave out the flame broiled chicken.

To benefit from your simmered cherry tomatoes, you need to cook them low and moderate. As low as 150C/300F however long 1+hours. Nonetheless, to keep things simple, I typically pop them in the stove at a higher temp until they simply start to blast. In any case, you MUST ensure you keep the juices. Such a lot of yummy flavor!

Combined

  1. Serve pasta with sliced grilled chicken on top, a heavy sprinkling of parmesan, a side salad and some garlic bread. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Side Salad – Here I simply used Rocket/Arugula, Pine Nuts, Red Onion, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Seasoning. Also, check out my Homemade Garlic Bread Recipe!
  • Avocado – Ensure it’s nice and ripe, if the avocado if underripe the sauce will taste bitter and it’ll be difficult to blend.
  • Chicken -Really important to firstly make sure the chicken is close to room temp before frying (cold chicken will seize up and go chewy) but also important to let it rest before slicing. If you slice it right away it’ll loose it’s juiciness and go dry.
  • Calories based on no sides or toppings, just the chicken, pasta, sauce and tomatoes then shared between 2.
