Chipotle Glazed Chicken with Guacamole Sauce

Chipotle Glazed Chicken

This is one of my favorite recipes.

I make it for company and they think I’m Martha Stewart.

 It is that good!

As long as you have ripe avocados and chicken, you have dinner.

You probably have everything in your pantry already.

This whips up in minutes, with no marinating.

Cooked on the grill it is fantastic.

I’ve made it while camping and loved it.

Thighs, no breast, no problem.

Leftover chicken or guacamole sitting in the fridge, you got this. Just add a few spices and lime to freshen it up.

Slice it up and stick it in a tortilla, wa-la tacos.

Slice it up and put it in salad, it is SO good.
