Blackened Chicken with Avocado Cream Sauce


  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons no-salt blackened seasoning
  • 1/2cup plain, 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and pit removed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced


  • Place the chicken breasts and blackened seasoning in a large resealable bag. Seal and shake a few times to evenly coat the chicken.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, combine the yogurt, avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt and pulse until smooth and creamy.
  • To serve, top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the creamy avocado sauce and garnish with ½ tablespoon green onions.
  • Serve over quinoa or brown rice
