Add the chicken & bacon to the hot skillet and saute for about 3-5 minutes still over medium high heat to obtain a nice brown color.  Reduce the heat to medium low.  Season with the paprika and onion powder.  Stir.

Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 more minutes.  Add a pinch of salt and pepper.  Remove from heat.  Set aside.

Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and scoop the avocado halves from the skin.  Slice.
