Can I make Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados ahead of time?

While it’s best to enjoy this dish fresh out of the oven, you can prepare the stuffing mixture in advance and store it in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to serve, simply fill the avocado halves and bake them as instructed.

What can I serve with Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados?

These stuffed avocados make a satisfying meal on their own. However, if you prefer to serve them as a side dish, they pair well with grilled chicken or a refreshing green salad.

Can I use different types of cheese?

Absolutely! While the recipe calls for shredded Parmesan cheese, you can experiment with different types of cheese to suit your taste preferences. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or feta cheese can all be delicious alternatives.

Are there any vegetarian variations of this recipe?

If you prefer a vegetarian option, you can omit the chicken and incorporate other vegetables or plant-based proteins into the stuffing mixture. Consider adding ingredients such as corn, black beans, or tofu for a delightful twist.

Can I freeze the leftovers?

Avocado doesn’t freeze well, so it’s best to enjoy these stuffed avocados fresh. However, if you have leftover chicken mixture, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days and use it as a filling for other dishes.

Servings 8 stuffed avocado halves


  • 4 avocados halved and pitted
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts shredded
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup chopped tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese or more to taste


  • Follow these simple steps to create your own Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados:
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Using a spoon, carefully scoop out some of the flesh from the center of each avocado half and place it in a mixing bowl. Add the shredded chicken, softened cream cheese, chopped tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to the bowl. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
  • Spoon generous amounts of the chicken mixture into the wells of each avocado half. Top each stuffed avocado with a generous amount of shredded Parmesan cheese. Placing the avocado halves face-up in muffin cups will help stabilize them during the baking process.
  • Bake the avocados in the preheated oven for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.


Cook's Notes:
- For a delightful variation, you can substitute 6 ounces of drained crab meat (canned or fresh) for the chicken. Add 1 tablespoon of scallions for an extra burst of flavor.
- Leftover chicken mixture can be utilized by filling hollowed-out tomatoes or peppers and cooked in the same way.
- The cooking time and flavor of the dish may vary depending on how the chicken is cooked (grilled, broiled, or stewed).
