Ok, this was seriously good! I'm not one to pat myself on the back too much... BUT... DANG this was GOOOOOD!!! What's even better about it is - it's SO simple!
I love dishes like this because you can throw it together quickly and people will never even know! They will think you spent hours.... ok, ok, maybe not hours, but they will think that you went way out of your way for such a flavorful dish. All you'll have to do is sit back and smile.... :)
I cooked three pieces of chicken instead of four....I was actually only going to do just one for each of us, but was worried Chris might want seconds. So, it was just by chance that I happened to have an extra piece of chicken for an unexpected, yet ALWAYS welcomed, guest. Served with Mustard Roasted Potatoes and a side salad, it was the perfect meal and we are all completely satisfied in the end! I guess what I'm trying to tell you is: even though I have the recipe written out for 3 pieces of chicken, you can easily use 4...or 2.
Jalapeno Cheddar Grilled Chicken
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (you can use 4)
3 Tablespoons Ranch dressing
1 Tablespoon Country Bob's Apple Chipotle Sauce (you could use Sriracha or Sambal Oelek if you don't have Country Bob's)
1 Jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, sliced into thin rounds
cheddar cheese, sliced (I used block cheese and used about 2-3 slices on each piece of chicken)
2-3 Tablespoons Wholly Guacamole Spicy Guacamole
In a small bowl, mix together the Ranch and apple chipotle sauce. Place the chicken in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (I marinated mine for 4 hours).
Preheat your grill to 400 degrees. Oil the grill grates. Remove the chicken from the dish/bag and place it directly over the heat. Grill for 8 minutes. Flip the chicken and lay the jalapeno slices on top of each piece (I used about 3 rounds per piece of chicken).
Let the chicken cook another 5-7 minutes.
Top with the cheese (make sure to cover the grill) and let the chicken cook another 1-2 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove the chicken from the grill. Top each piece with spicy guacamole and enjoy!
