Pour about 1/3 of the dressing over the chicken and allow it to marinate for at least 15 minutes. Refrigerate the remaining dressing until ready to use.

Next, heat oil in a large non-stick pan, and add in the chicken in a single layer. Cook until golden brown and cooked through about 5-7 minutes.

If it is going to be used as a side salad or not eaten immediately, ensure the avocado is well covered in the Ranch Dressing or lemon juice, to prevent it going brown.
