Cumin-Dusted Chicken Breasts with Guacamole Sauce

I wanted to share a recipe that is going around work right now... If I am correct, I believe it is from Cooking Light's website. One of my coworkers made it, and now everyone at work is trying out this recipe. It is REALLY, really good! Especially if you like avocados!

Mix together the first eight ingredients to make the sauce that you will smother on top of the chicken.

Season the chicken with brown sugar, cumin, salt and pepper

Sear the chicken for 3 minutes, then bake in oven for 10 minutes (or until done)

Take out of the oven, smother with the guacamole sauce, and voila! I also made some sticky brown rice to go with it, so yummy! Enjoy! The recipe is below...
