Notes

I made this last night with boneless skinless thighs instead of the breasts as they have a tendency to dry out. It was absolutely fab. Pouring the pan juices over the chicken is a must. Not sure why they labeled the guacamole as a "sauce" as it is not pourable liquid as I would consider a sauce to be...it's just guacamole, which would be a good recipe on its own. Honestly, the chicken is perfectly great without the "sauce"!

Side note: I also made this with my "Refried Beans" recipe that I posted last year. It's a lite version of the real thing...and I think more authentic than what comes in a can.

A dash of local for every season
