California Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
2 avocados - peeled, pitted and sliced
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
1 (8 ounce) package Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 10 slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Warm oil in skillet and add chicken and onion powder. Cook 15 minutes or until chicken is browned and just about done. Add salt and pepper to taste.***
Place chicken on cookie sheet and top each breast with 1 to 2 slices of tomato and 2 to 3 slices of cheese. Place in oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until cheese melts. Remove from oven, add 2 to 3 slices of avocado on top of each breast, and serve immediately.

***I hate sauteing chicken, I hate how it pops and the time it takes and see it as pointless in a lot of recipes so instead of sauteing it I baked the chicken at 350 for 30 minutes(cut open to see if it is done) and then went from there following the recipe. It was easier and less of a mess.
