Let's Make It
Mix 2 Tbsp. each dressing and salsa until blended. Pour over chicken in shallow dish; turn to evenly coat both sides of chicken breasts with dressing mixture. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.
Meanwhile, cook rice as directed on package, using 1-1/2 cups water and omitting the salt.
Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cook chicken in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 6 to 8 min. on each side or until done (165ºF). Remove chicken from skillet; cover to keep warm. Add tomatoes to skillet; cook 3 min. or until tomatoes start to burst, stirring frequently.
Blend avocado with remaining dressing, remaining salsa and 1/4 cup cilantro in blender until smooth, gradually adding remaining water if necessary until sauce is desired drizzling consistency.
Add remaining cilantro to rice; mix well. Top with chicken and avocado sauce.
This creamy avocado sauce is also a perfect complement to cooked beef steaks.
