This baked chicken breast combines all the things we love - crunchy chicken, everything but the bagel seasoning, smashed avocado, and your favorite topping. Everything But the Bagel Avocado Chicken is easy to make and big on flavor so it'll come as no surprise when it quickly becomes a weeknight favorite.
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Prep for breading. In one shallow bowl, gently stir together flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. In a second shallow bowl, whisk together eggs. In a third shallow bowl, mix together breadcrumbs and Everything but the Bagel seasoning.
Dredge each chicken cutlet first in flour, then in egg, then in breadcrumb mixture. Place chicken cutlet on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes, until cooked throughout (chicken should have an internal temperature of 165F).
While chicken is cooking, mash avocados and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. If not serving immediately, add lime juice to minimize browning. Set aside.
Spread 1/4 of avocado mixture on top of each baked cutlet. Add any desired toppings and serve immediately.
(If you anticipate leftovers, wrap cutlets separate from avocado mixture and toppings. Reheat cutlet and then assemble just before serving.)
