Chicken Avocado Tots

So I’ve been waiting to post about these because I was trying to take a really nice picture that fully shows how tasty and neat these snacks are. Well, here’s the first picture I ever took, because honestly, none of the other pictures looked any better. I guess I’ll have just describe them 😉

When trying to gain weight on the SCD diet, avocados and coconut oil play an important role. Sure red meat and eggs can help you gain weight, and don’t forget all those almond butter brownies, but avocados and coconut oil are cheaper and easier if you ask me. So I set about figuring out how to have avocados and coconut oil with just about everything. I use coconut oil in all my cooking. Avocados I like enough to eat just on their own, but I also really like these chicken avocado tots I found on www.scdrecipe.com.

Basically it’s just cooked chicken breast and avocado put in a blender and blended up. I tend to vary between using more avocado than chicken and vise-versa. Then place about a spoonful onto a pan full of coconut oil and fry em’ till they’re nice and browned on both sides. I make mine sorta like a flattened meatball, but you could also make them completely round. They end up pretty tasty and even better if you have them with some ketchup to dip it in. Nice snack to just grab from the fridge now and then.


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.


  1. Hey, Kat!

    I like your blog (found your link w/in a post on the SCD list).

    These look very good. Would you believe I’ve never tried an avocado? I think I must!

  2. Avocados are definitely worth a try. I love them. The only problem is waiting for them to get ripe, sometimes it takes forever. I feel like I’m always waiting for avocados and bananas to ripen 😉

  4. Have you tried freezing and reheating? I have 3 hungry kiddos and anything I can make in big batches and freeze is a win.
