Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken could just as easily be called guacamole chicken. Juicy chicken breasts filled with creamy avocado. Rolled, dunked then dredged in crushed pork rinds making it low carb and keto friendly. It’s all topped off with a creamy cheese sauce that brings the whole dish together. Easy enough for any weeknight meal and elegant enough for entertaining.
Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken is what’s for dinner. It’s a low carb, avocado lovers dream dish. I give bonus points because you get to use the mallet and pound out the day’s frustrations, or you know, a mini arm workout, you decide. Giving extra meaning to winner winner chicken dinner if you ask me.
I’m one of those people that would live on an avocado farm if I could. I LOVE them. Ah to be able to have unlimited avocados every single day. Goals. When avocados are reasonably priced, because I’m not a Rockefeller, I buy as many as I can.
Then I need to be creative in the ways I use them, because I can only eat so many avocado toasts.
This recipe starts with just a few ingredients. Chicken breasts, avocado (they’re in the recipe title to be expected), lime juice, spices, eggs and the kicker … Pork Rinds!
Yes you read correctly. Pork rinds. They’re in place of breadcrumbs and they’re fantastic. If for some reason you have an aversion to using pork rinds, you could also go with a more traditional breading product.
I place my pork rinds into a small zip top bag and gently smash them until they’re roughly the size of breadcrumbs. You could also blitz them in a blender or food processor if you’re fancier or just like doing dishes. Y’all know my aversion to doing extra dishes. Just saying.
How To Make Keto Avocado Stuffed Chicken?
To create the chicken rolls, you’ll pound the chicken breasts thinly and spread a light layer of the mashed avocado onto the top. Roll each breast up and secure with toothpicks.
Dredge station to follow. Eggs in one bowl, Breading in the next.
Drop, Dip and roll. That’s all there is too it.
While the chicken is baking you can create a cheese sauce to drizzle on top or dip your chicken into. It’s optional but for me cheese is always a good thing.
Serve it with a side Caesar salad and maybe GRILLED ASPARAGUS !

What the PORK RINDS?!?! I’ve been doing a modified Keto diet and the subject of pork rinds has come up quite a bit. Will have to give this a try!
Made this tonight and it’s very good — my husband loved it. This will stay on my Pinterest rotation — only thing I changed was I added a lemon piccata sauce instead of cheese sauce — thanks for the healthy recipe!
I am sorry…did I miss the recipe for the cheese sauce?
Hi Claire – I didn’t include it as it’s something I just whipped up. I used: butter, flour and then whisked in milk, Dijon and grated Parm. Seasoned with salt and pepper and cooked until it thickened. Maybe I’ll do a formal post on it soon : )
Hi, I was wondering if you could sub thighs for the chicken breast? This recipe sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to try it. Thanks.
