Because every bowl should come with avocado, okay. Thats gonna be my new meal prep rule. If you want your avocado to stay in tip top shape, I recommend buying one that is still super hard and will ripen as the week carries on. As a food photographer, literally the hardest part of my job is picking out the perfect avocado for photos. You laugh, but I swear, I get so stressed out when I go to the grocery store and realize most of the avocados are either unripe or too soft.

The avocado is a finicky fruit yes, I think its a fruitIm actually so dramatic, but you get it. Basically, try to pick the firmest avocado you can while ensuring a tiny bit of softness so you can slice it up and pack it in these bowls for the week. I usually find its fine for 4 days or so if you slice it up just at the point where its about to ripen. Part of the trick to making these Coconut Mango Chicken Meal Prep Bowls in a pinch is also having the right equipment on hand and knowing when to time everything.

When you cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise, you can cook them for half the time you would normally need maybe 4 minutes each side if that.
