This recipe was given to me by our pastor's wife. We live on a 65-acre avocado ranch and have many varieties of avocados to choose from. With our children grown and gone, my husband and I keep quite busy ranching.

"This was a pretty good meal. I'd suggest being careful with your chicken and keep testing it, because half of my chicken was overcooked after only 15 minutes. The taste is VERY tart, and was a tad strong for us, but it was a good taste. It just needed to be toned down. I'd also suggest sprinkling the chicken with some salt & pepper before browning it to give it a little more flavor. I served this with a side of steamed carrots I had drizzle with leftover glaze. I'd make this again, but look for a way to tone down the "POW" of tartness."
