    diner524's Note:

    An appetizer recipe I found in my Weber's Charcoal Grilling cookbook that plan to try soon!! Time doesn't include the 3 hour marinating of the chicken. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but plan to grill some onions, along with the chicken and chiles.

      So, so good! The marinade was the real star of the recipe, and I'm glad I took the time to marinate the chicken overnight- it really made a difference. I loved the guacamole as well. I don't have a grill, so I cooked the chicken on the foreman grill, and then later cooked the quesadillas on a frying pan coated with cooking spray. It worked fine, although I'd love to try making these on a grill! [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]
