To make sauce: In medium-size sauce pot, melt butter. Add jalapenos and
onion. Sauté over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring, until
vegetables are softened. Do not let onions brown. Reduce heat and add lime
juice, salt and pepper. Add sour cream and whisk until mixture comes to a
boil. Set aside.

To assemble: Slice avocado and divide among 4 serving plates, creating a fan
shape on each plate to be used as a bed to hold the chicken. Slice hot
chicken breasts into lengthwise strips and set over avocado.

Add tequila to sour cream sauce and heat through. Use to top chicken and
avocado. Serve with rice or salad.
