I made this tonight for dinner since I had a lot of left over pineapple and pineapple juice. The marinade was very very good on the chicken, but I went lightly on the peppers. This was my first time eating and obviously preparing an avacado. I dont know if I really liked the avacado cream with the chicken. I ended up just eating the chicken by itself. Made this indoors with my imatation george forman grill. Will make again but subbing a diffrent sauce or omiting a sacue all together since the chicken is divine on its own.

Very tasty! The marinade gave the chicken a nice glaze, and the avocado cream was fantastic!! I served this over red coral lettuce with some corn, beans, red pepper and onion as a grilled chicken salad and used the avocado cream as a dressing. The chicken and the avocado cream compliment each other perfectly. Really yummy. We'll definitely make this again. Thanks Juenessa!
