    Delicious! Followed the recipe as exact and really enjoyed it. Don’t need that many avocados, I used one big one and it was plenty

    Fabulous recipe. I just started my paleo journey. This is my second dinner that is full Palio. Such fresh flavor, and the lime marinade made the chicken so tender. I paired mine with some Spanish cauliflower rice. I will be using this recipe often!!! Fully recommend.

    Amazing!!!!! It was so delicious 😋 I did my avocado salsa more like guacamole but it was relish. Paired it with some Mexican street corn.

    Delicious! I’ve made this multiple times. The best avocado salsa I have ever had or made, and pairs excellently with the easy chicken marinade.

    Didn’t cook the chicken well, cooked with beans, asparagus, broccoli and Nik choy. Timings were way off. Had some coconut rice with it

    Turned out great! We used a food processor for the avocado salsa and I think that made it more “salsa-like”.

    I used chicken wings instead. Came out delicious and flavorful. Also made a side of Spanish rice
