I've had this recipe for years and I can't remember where I got it. It takes a little effort to make but it is soooo delicious that it's worth the effort.

Fabulous recipe! I wasn't sure about the cornmeal, I thought it might be grainy, but it turned out very nicely. I didn't use the avocado because I'm allergic but it was still yummy. A nice change from plain old chicken!
