If the chili lime flavored Cholula is my least favorite, the chili garlic is by far, hands down, my absolute favorite! It's got the perfect combination of spice and garlic. And it goes so well with everything.... did I mention it's my favorite??
The great thing about this recipe... it's simple AND it produces some amazing flavor.
Don't want to grill the chicken? No problem, pan sear it or bake it - either way, you know it's going to be good because it's got a SAUCE!!! :)
