Quick Chicken Al Forno

Chicken Al Forno is made with a flavorful chicken breast topped with mashed avocado, feta and draped in melted gouda.

Quick Chicken Al Forno

Although Al Forno is defined as “food that has been baked in an oven”, you know at Chirpy we try to make things as quick and easy as possible. So, that’s why our version of the recipe is called, you guessed it, Quick Chicken Al Forno.

Well, with only 4 ingredients and a couple of spices, of course it’s going to be quick. The big cheat comes in at the “cook in an oven” part though. Instead of cooking the chicken in the oven, we pan-seared it.

We topped the juicy chicken breast with some roughly mashed avocado, crumbled feta cheese and then draped 2 slices of gouda cheese over the whole thing. It was then slid under the broiler for exactly 2 minutes.
