  • 4 large chicken breasts
  • 24 slices mozzarella cheese about 3 x 2 in. and 1/4 in. thick
  • 6 strips bacon (optional) slightly cooked in a microwave to soften
  • 2 medium tomatoes slice with flesh and seeds removed (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon oregano


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your grill to 300°F.
  • Cut slits about 1 in. deep and 1/2 in. apart into each chicken breast. Do not cut all the way through.
  • You can use wooden spoons or butter knives placed parallel to the breasts to prevent from cutting through.
  • Insert mozzarella cheese and a slice of bacon or tomato into each slit. Then, season the chicken breasts with chili powder and oregano.
  • Place the chicken breasts on the grill and close the lid. Grill for 30 to 45 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • Slice each avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Brush the interior of the avocados with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once the chicken breasts are fully cooked, move them to the top warming rack. Place the avocados face side down on the grill. Grill for 30 seconds.
  • Remove the chicken breasts and avocados from the grill. Let the chicken rest for five minutes before serving. Enjoy!
