Do you know how uncool it is to be allergic to avocados? "It's the good kind of fat", says everyone, and I have to miss out on it. Maybe that's the secret to Chrissy Teigen's perfect figure. I remember watching her share her recipe on The Chew, and immediately wanted to try because I LOVE chicken drums/thighs since they are so much juicier and more flavorful than chicken breast.
The combo of flavors in the recipe is unreal. Garlic, cilantro and green onion, BBQ, chipotle, adobo, lime, brown sugar, and sweet mango! The best part is you can taste every single one of them with each bite, there is an insane amount of flavor.
When Chrissy says there's a difference between 'spicy' and 'Bangkok spicy', she's not lying! I only used one can of ancho chili peppers in adobo sauce and the steam from the marinaide actually and literally burned my nostrils when I was washing out the food processor. Anyways, the point of this rant is to warn those who are spice sensitive! ;)
PS--My whole kitchen REEKS of chipotle-garlicky goodness, and I never want it to go away.
