Good old San Antonio cooking! This recipe is from one of the best Mexican restaurants here in San Antonio! It was printed in our local newspaper. The grilled chicken is marinated, grilled and then topped with a wonderful, creamy, and tasty chipotle sauce. It is delicious. The nice part is you decide how "hot" you want it. This is good with cilantro lime rice on the side, or with Mexican rice. This is one of those dishes that impresses all who eat it, especially at a dinner party. Different, but scrumptious!
