NOTE: Can someone please try this method in a Strongholds match against the AI and see how much better that is if it works? It could work much better. If no-one tries it before I do, I'll update this with what happens...

If you can't find someone to boost this with, I found a relatively painless method to get this solo against the AI!
Note: this method will also work for co-op if you want to do it this way, probably not as quick as feeding grunts into the flame though.

Load up a solo skirmish on any map, with ALL helpful skulls.
For the map settings:
Game Type: Deathmatch
Starting resources: 9999
Unit ability cooldown: 200%
Fog of War: Off
AI: Normal recommended, possibly easy will work just as well
Make sure to pick leader Kinsano!

Once the match starts, build on EVERY build point right away, then build supply pads and aim for 8 power generators. Get the Armory built ASAP on the base closest to the AI, and build Kinsano ASAP.

Upgrade Kinsano as soon as you can, and provide some anti-air support as Kinsano can't attack air.

So! I discovered that killing buildings/turrets counts for this achievement! So, instead of focusing on buildings/turrets, just let the AI waste it's starting resources(you'll need to defend a little at first).

Then, bring Kinsano just in range of the enemy base buildings(NOT the main base structure) and press Y to activate the flame ability. It'll help if you've reseached the Leader Power to increase speed and damage.
Let Kinsano burn down some buildings and any units in the way, and then when the AI keeps trying to rebuild that location she'll just burn through the buildings that are only partway built. Do this.
Once her ability runs out, just run away from the base, heal if necessary, wait for the recharge and repeat!

I finally discovered this after wasting a lot of time in Skirmish, and it suddenly became very easy and quick to do solo. Yay!
