Heat oil in a heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken, in batches if necessary, until browned, about 7 minutes; transfer to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium and add onions; cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, chili powder and chiles. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Return chicken to the pot and add tomatoes, 2 tablespoons lime juice and sugar. Add enough stock or water to cover chicken. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare avocado cream by combining avocado, yogurt or sour cream, remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until smooth (or mash by hand).

Serve chipotle chicken with chopped cilantro, avocado cream and brown rice.

This is a great recipe. I made it for my partner and myself first, and we enjoyed it so much that I decided to make it for my father's birthday dinner. It's flavorful and yummy. Definitely a big hit!
