  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Guacamole Ingredients

  • 1 Haas Avocado mashed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 plum tomato diced
  • 2 Tablespoons onion diced
  • cilantro, optional chopped


  • Add olive oil and butter to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat until butter is melted and begins to froth.
  • Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and sprinkle with paprika.
  • Place cutlets in a single layer in the skillet, working in batches if necessary.
  • Cook chicken cutlets for about 3-4 minutes without disturbing. Flip to the other side and cook for 3-4 minutes more or cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165°F. Cooking time will vary depending upon the thickness of the chicken.
  • If preparing fresh guacamole, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • When chicken is cooked through, turn heat off or to low. Top each piece of chicken with a portion of the guacamole and sprinkle cheese over the top. Cover skillet with a lid until the cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Enjoy immediately.
