    I made this recipe as directed except I left out the onions. Next time I'll include green or purple onions and try sub'ing cilantro for parsley. I felt like it could have used more of a kick.

    This recipe is superb. I love the sweetness of the rub on the chicken. The guacomole makes it as well. My kids devoured the chicken. I will make again and again and could easily serve to company.

    This chicken is delicious AND easy, so it is truly a winner. I pounded the chicken breasts out, so they would cook faster and more uniformly, so I just baked them for 7 minutes after browning. For the sauce, I used Dean's Zesty Guacamole as a base and added some lime juice, cilantro and a bit of sour cream. This recipe will go into our regular rotation.

    This recipe is so easy and SO delicious. If you don't have fresh parsley and green onions, make it anyway, the sauce still tastes great! Also makes a great dip for tortilla chips. I typically substitute the sour cream with nonfat plain yogurt and that is great too.

    An absolutely amazing dish! I have to admit, I was a bit worried in the beginning with the smell of the brown sugar sauce, but the avocado sauce smelled wonderful. In the end, both sauces worked together in a way I'm still not able to describe to make the chicken taste nothing less than the best chicken I've had in years. Thanks for the recipe!! -Kivak

    I have made this more times than I can count. It is an excellent recipe! It finally got my son to try guacamole and he is now hooked. I like to use 3 avocados instead of one, keeping the rest of the proportions the same. The great lime flavor still comes through. Also, as with many of the reviewers, I tried cilantro in place of the parsley...adds a nice flavor! The chicken is awesome too!

    The gauc. is righteous! The chicken is pretty good too. Served with Lipton Taco Rice and HEB Refried Beans w/ Tomato & Chili, yum, yum:)

    I have been making this recipe for years. It is great for company and family get togethers. I have used it with boneless skinless thighs and tenderloin. I like it best when we have grilled the meat and the thighs are the best. I also exchange the parsely for cilantro to make it more authentic. Love this recipe!

    This was shockingly good. I didn't have ff sour cream, so I used a few tablespoons of canola mayo instead (sounds ridiculous, but it actually makes for great guac as well). I also added chopped fresh jalapeno to the sauce. Great stuff.

    I wasn't crazy about the sweetness of the chicken, but the guacamole sauce was quite tasty. I would use the sauce again, but would spice the chicken differently.
