Crunchy Chicken Fingers with Spicy Avocado

I have been on a big avocado kick this year and have been eating it at least once a week. I was looking through my Robin Miller cookbook and came across this quick and low fat recipe and knew I would have to give it a try.

From Robin Miller Quick Cookbook
I made this just for me as Tom still thinks chicken is totally gross.

Preheat your oven and gather some ingredients.
You will need some chicken, avocado, lime, bread crumbs, hot sauce, hot peppers, sour cream, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, thyme (I forgot it!), cilantro - if you are one of those people, salt and pepper.

Slice your chicken.

Combine your bread crumbs with the spices and the salt and pepper.

Dredge your chicken through the bread crumbs to get it evenly coated.

Drop the chicken on to pan coated with non stick spray or use the wonderful non-stick foil that I love. Get these guys in the oven for 20 minutes.

Chop up your peppers. I used some sport peppers and they were HOT!

Combine the avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, lime juice and hot peppers together. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. If you are one of those cilantro eating people you can add that in at the end as well.

After 20 minutes get your chicken out. It didn't brown as much as I wanted but it was cooked through.

Crunchy Chicken Fingers with Spicy Avocado
Plate up the chicken with the avocado and enjoy! This sauce can be used with a bunch of different things and would be delicious on a turkey burger or fish tacos. The chicken was seasoned well and crunchy, but the sauce was definitely the star for me.


  1. Great recipe. I love that these chicken fingers are baked and not deep fried. :) The spicy avocado sounds just as amazing and perfect with these chicken fingers too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Dear Rhonda, This is one of my favorite meals!! Blessings dearest. Catherine xox

  3. I love all things avocado, and I'll take your cilantro! :D Sometimes if I bake stuff like that, and it's not as dark, I spray it with my olive oil mister and finish it up under the broiler - looks delicious though!

  4. I will take Tom's portion - it looks mighty tasty to me!

  5. This sounds so good Rhonda. I tend to bake (or grill) my chicken too. I love it that way. I think the sauce would be awesome too and like you said, you can use it on many things!

  6. Spicy avocado dipping sauce - I love that and the chicken, too =)

  7. I am also NOT one of those Cilantro people. It tastes soapy. The rest looks delish. I will be trying this tomorrow.

  8. Yum, I want this for dinner, sounds so good!

  9. That avocado cream sauce sounds like the perfect pairing for these!!

  10. Yummy I love the chicken with the avocado cream sauce.
