- 1 pound chicken cutlets
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 One Avocado Guacamole see recipe link or recipe below
- 1 cup Pepper Jack cheese shredded; or replace with Monterey Jack or Mozzarella Cheeses
- 1 Haas Avocado mashed
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- ⅛ 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.
