This chicken is excellent! Moist and tasty.. and the kids like it, too! I serve it on corn-dusted Kaiser rolls as a sandwich, and everybody loves it!

Delicious & easy. I don't like avocado so I did leave out, but followed the rest of the recipe. I had over a layer of fried rice. Very tasty. I am going to try it on a hard roll as a sandwich next time. Thanks Sherri.

Loved this recipe! I did use guacamole in place of the avocado slices. It was yummy.

OMG!!! this is one of my favorite chicken recipes. I make this at least once per week. the marinade keeps the chicken from drying out. i followed the recipe exactly with one exception. Instead of soy sauce, i used teryaki sauce because that's all i had on hand. PERFECTO!!

I've made this chicken many times; family enjoys it and we just top with bacon cheese since no one likes tomato or avacodo.
