It always seems to happen that when I make a lot of something, it doesn’t turn out that great and I’m sorry I have so many leftovers…then the night that I make something super delicious, not only were there no leftovers – but the guys were looking for more. That was tonight…this was soooo good!
Hubby and younger son like things very spicy…me and older son – not so much. When I saw “chipotles in adobo” – I knew this had the potential to be really spicy because those suckers are hot. So I decided to use 1 pepper instead of 2. I tell you – it wasn’t spicy at all. Maybe a little burn – but almost nothing. Even I could have handled the 2 peppers I think – but it was a delicious smokiness just the way it was. Oh – and to keep it simple, I used chicken tenders. I only marinated it for about 30 minutes since I didn’t plan ahead – and it was plenty. But my goodness – the avocado cream sauce…that was out of this world. You would expect the herb to be cilantro in something like this…but trust me, the basil was so good. I didn’t even have fresh (I freeze my leftover herbs to use later). Since this was done up in a blender, it didn’t matter that it was frozen.
Delicous…and everyone loved it. Winner winner chicken dinner!
