Feeding Frenzy: Avocado Chicken Ranch Bowls

Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I were hanging out at my parents’ house. We were outside enjoying the crisp early fall weather and discussing dinner plans when I suddenly decided that I absolutely *had* to make this new dish I had been thinking about. We were celebrating a family friend’s birthday, what better time!

My boyfriend and I raced to the grocery store, then I got to work.

I love the avocado club rolls at the California Pizza Kitchen, and wanted to create my own dish with similar flavors. A few weeks ago I was in Stop and Shop and noticed a package of egg roll wrappers, it was time to give it a try! I gathered up the major elements – avocado, chicken, bacon, tomatoes – and gave it a go.

Assembling - Avocado Slices

They were a hit, I was so happy! Nothing makes a girl proud like a bunch of mumbles and nods 🙂

All in all, I think this is more of a summer dish, but sitting next to the toasty warm chiminea on that mild fall evening I could almost imagine the sun was shining on my shoulders.
