Pop the wedges onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over the Mexican style spice mix, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
Roast the wedges on the top shelf of your oven, and chicken skewers on the middle shelf of your oven until golden and cooked through, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soured cream, remaining lime zest and half the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside.
Halve the avocado and remove the stone. Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out into a medium bowl.

When the skewers have 5 mins remaining, remove the tray from the oven. Drizzle over the honey (see pantry for amount), then return to the oven for the remaining time.
When everything's ready, share the skewers between your plates.
Serve the wedges and guac alongside. Drizzle over the zesty soured cream to finish.
