"This is out of my Texas The Beautiful Cookbook...The mayonnaise is also good with grilled or broiled shrimp, barbecued hamburgers topped with cheese and green chiles, or cold grilled beef. You can serve the mayonnaise mixture as a dip for raw veggies as well."

Pleasing and delicious chicken, especially enjoyed on a Friday night after a long and hard work week. Easy, quick and the sauce is Fabulous. Sprinkled a combination of seasoning over the top of chicken (used chicken tenders) and pan fried instead of grilled because I just didn't have the energy to light it. This will be made again and again. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game.

We really enjoyed this chicken! And the chipotle mayo paired beautifully with the limey/hot flavour. So happy to have tried your recipe Teresa! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Easy and good chicken without a lot of extras. We are going to use the leftover chicken and leftover mayo for chicken salad tomorrow -- it will be great! Thanks for sharing!

Quick and easy grilled chicken. The chipotle mayo sauce is a nice accompaniment. The only changes I made was to add additional lime juice and I used adobo sauce from the chilies vs. the chilies. Nice balance of flavors.
