Avocado and bacon are two of my favorite paleo and AIP friendly foods. Not long after I had first gone paleo I was home for lunch and my best friend and roommate walked in. She asked what I was eating and I said a salad, she asked what was in it and I replied avocado and bacon. She laughed and walked away. Personally, I couldn’t think of a more delicious lunch.
This recipe is just simple and delicious. Not a lot of frills and nothing fancy just everyone’s favorite simple flavors brought together into one yummy dinner. This is definitely one of those kid friendly and husband approved meals that you will end up adding to your regular menu.
My only recommendation is to definitely stick with the red onion. Don’t substitute in a yellow or a white onion if you can help it because the red onion really adds a special kick of flavor that just can’t be beat.

Avocado Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon
4-5 Chicken Breasts, pounded thin
½ red onion
½ lemon, juiced
1 tsp sea salt
4-5 slices of bacon
½ tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound your chicken breasts until they are thin and of equal thicknesses. In your food processor combine your avocado, red onion, lemon juice and salt and blend until smooth. Take a spoonful of the avocado mixture and spread it across one side of the chicken breast. Roll the chicken breast and secure with a toothpick. Wrap the chicken with one slice of bacon and set into a glass baking dish. Repeat with all of the chicken. Sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder and bake for 25-35 minutes or until bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through. Enjoy.
