Chicken Stuffed Avocados

Chicken Stuffed AvocadosThe Penner family is a family of avocado lovers (everyone but my youngest, and I’m working on her.)

We are so lucky to live in Southern California where not much is cheap… but the avocados often are.  I snagged a large bag of them the other day for only $1.99.
