These BBQ Chicken Avocado Boats Are the Easy Dinner-Party Trick You Need

When you leave the office at 6 p.m., prepping dinner for guests feels harder than finding an open slot in everyone's calendar (seriously, the party coordination struggle is real).

Reality check: Not if you have the right ingredients. One package of PERDUE®FIT & EASY® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts is all you need to go from impossible meal-prep situation to 'gram-worthy meal.

Just cook and shred the fresh boneless, skinless chicken (raised with an all-vegetarian diet and no antibiotics, ever), slather in smoky BBQ sauce, and scoop into creamy avocado halves. Then bake and add your fave healthy toppings—and don't be surprised that chicken-topped avocado boats become your signature dish.

Grab a chilled bottle of rosé, toss together a chopped salad while the dish cooks, and you've got dinner in about 20 minutes. Summer dinner parties, saved.

  1. Slice the avocados in half, lengthwise. Remove the pits and some of the avocado flesh. Brush the flesh of the avocado with olive oil to keep from turning brown. Place the avocados, cut side up, in a small baking dish.
