Chicken-Stuffed Roz Heads

While Roz might not be super warm and fuzzy, this dish is a hearty bite that will satisfy everyone at the table. Plus, the visual is quite amusing.

With so many people buying extra avocados for avocado toast, avocado eggs and just guacamole, that ingredient seems to be in everyone’s kitchen.

Avocado and chicken are a great pair. The flavors meld well together and that is important in a dish for the whole family.

Looking at this recipe, the use of Greek yogurt keeps the chicken lighter than using a mayonnaise for the chicken salad portion. Plus, the Greek yogurt adds touch of tartness. It offers a nice balance to the overall flavor profile.

Lastly, this recipe allows for a lot of personal choices. Who wouldn’t want to move that “mole” around Roz’s face or change her hair? Maybe it will be your way of standing up for Mike.

Here’s how to make Chicken-Stuffed Roz Heads.

Chicken-Stuffed Roz Heads


  • 1 1/3 cup cubed cooked chicken breast (about 7 ounces)
  • 2/3 cup DOLE® green grapes, halved
  • 1/3 cup chopped DOLE® celery
  • ½ cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 2 DOLE® avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
  • 8 small whole wheat pretzel twists
  • 24 whole wheat pretzel sticks
  • 1 DOLE® strawberry
  • 4 dried sweetened blueberries


  1. Stir together chicken, grapes, celery, yogurt, salt and pepper.
  2. Scoop four equal portions (about ½ cup) onto a serving plate to make 4 servings. Shape each into an oval.
  3. Top with upside down avocado half.
  4. Decorate each avocado half to resemble Roz’s face. Using a sharp paring knife, trim each pretzel twist to create the lens of her horn-rimmed glasses (cut off the double loop section of each pretzel twist and discard or enjoy as a snack, keeping the single loop portion which will become one lens. You will need 2 lenses per Roz Head). Place two pretzel lenses on each avocado to form her glasses. Add a pretzel stick to each side of avocado to form the arms of her glasses. Push 4pretzel sticks into the top of each avocado to form her hair. Add a strawberry slice, trimmed to look like lips for her mouth and a dried blueberry to the lower left side of her face to form her mole.
  5. Tip: For dairy-free recipe, use plain dairy-free coconut yogurt. Use gluten-free pretzels to make the recipe gluten-free
