6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves,  salt end pepper to taste, 2 avocados, ½  cup  sour cream
Preheat oven broiler. Arrange capsicums on roasting pan. Place under hot broiler, about 12 cms from heat; 
cook till skin turns black. Turn frequently to char all sides. Remove capsicums from roasting pan and place in a plastic bag. 
Close tightly and allow to steam 10 minutes. Cook rice according to package directions. 
When rice is done, remove from heat and keep warm. Carefully remove capsicums from bag. 
When capsicums are cool enough to handle, slip off and discard charred skins. 
Hold capsicums under cold running water to make peeling easier. Chop capsicums coarsly. 
In work bowl of food processor, combine capsicums with 1 cup cream. Process until smooth. 
Stir in remaining cream; set aside. Heat vegetable oil in large frypan over medium-high heat. 
Cook chicken breasts until brown on both sides. Season to tastewith salt and pepper. Pour cream mixture over chicken. 
When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to a vigorous simmer. Cook until sauce is reduced and slightly thickened, 
about 20-30 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste. Right before serving, peel and thinly slice avocados. 
Remove chicken breasts from heat and stir sour cream into sauce. Serve chicken breasts over rice with plenty of sauce
