My daughter & I made this recipe for our Father's Day dinner. Everyone liked it, even the kids! It is easy to make too!

I really liked the marinade for the chicken. The salsa was good, but nobody at our house is a fan of avocado, so I would probably omit that next time.

we were out of gas so couldn't grill the chicken and broiled it instead. The chicken still came out yummy and the salsa was very tasty!
