Family Favorite Creamy Avocado Chicken Pasta Recipe: Easy & Delicious Dinner for Busy Weeknights!

Hello my lovely readers! Today, I wanted to share an easy dinner recipe that has become a family favorite in our household. With the chilly March evenings still upon us here in Connecticut, this wholesome and comforting dish is perfect for warming up after a busy day.

This particular recipe holds a special place in my heart, as it is the dish that my daughter Emily played a big part in creating. Emily, our talented pianist, came home from her piano lessons one day and said she wanted to help me cook dinner. It was such a sweet gesture, and it touched my heart to see her taking an interest in cooking. We decided to create a simple but scrumptious meal using some of Emily’s favorite ingredients – avocado and chicken. Thus, our Creamy Avocado Chicken Pasta was born!

Emily and I had so much fun bonding in the kitchen while preparing this dish. The laughter and love that filled the air made the whole experience even more memorable. Cooking with your children is such a beautiful way to strengthen family ties and create cherished memories.

Now, let’s dive into this delightful Creamy Avocado Chicken Pasta recipe that is sure to leave your family asking for seconds!

– 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
– 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
– 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
– 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
– 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon lemon juice
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– 12 ounces pasta of your choice (we love using fusilli or penne!)
– Optional: cherry tomatoes and fresh basil for garnish

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. While the pasta is cooking, season the cubed chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chicken until it is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. In a food processor or blender, combine the avocado, Greek yogurt, Parmesan cheese, baking soda, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.

4. In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, cooked chicken, and creamy avocado sauce. Toss until everything is well-coated.

5. Serve immediately, garnishing with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil if desired.

There you have it – our scrumptious Creamy Avocado Chicken Pasta that’s perfect for a cozy family dinner! I hope you enjoy making and sharing this dish with your loved ones as much as Emily and I did. Remember, the kitchen is not just a place for cooking but also for creating warm memories with those we hold dear.

Happy cooking, my friends! Until next time!
