Chicken and Avocado Stir-Fry

I have such a hard time finding new healthy meals to make for dinner. I do great for breakfast and my lunches at work, but at dinner time it is so hard for me to come up with a meal that everyone in my house loves. And on top of that I need something quick and easy because the last thing I want to do when I come home is stand in the kitchen for 2 hours and make dinner.

My favorite meal is chicken stir-fry with avocado. It was during one of the many snow storms in my area where I needed to make something for dinner and I couldn’t go to the store. I had some chicken, avocados, peppers and onions, limes and cilantro. I put that all together with some rice and created my favorite dinner. It is so good that even my picky husband loves it. It is super easy and you can add whatever you want to it. Be warned for cilantro haters that there is a fair amount of the stuff in this recipe. Just omit it if you hate it that much – but you should really get over that because cilantro is delicious.
