Pro tip: If you have leftovers, the avocado cream sauce freezes and thaws perfectly! Freeze it in an airtight freezer-friendly bag and you’re all set.

Blackened Chicken with Avocado Cream Sauce

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving size: 4-ounce chicken breast and 2 tablespoons cream sauce


  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons blackened seasoning
  • Avocado Cream Sauce:
  • ½ cup plain, 0% Greek yogurt
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • For Serving:
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Place the chicken breasts and blackened seasoning in a large resealable bag. Seal and shake a few times to evenly coat the chicken.
  2. Lightly coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the yogurt, avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt and pulse until smooth and creamy.
  4. To serve, top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the creamy avocado sauce and garnish with ½ tablespoon green onions.
