I HAVE a large collection of recipes with a Southwest flavor. Served with either pasta or rice, this is one of my husband's favorites. The moist, flavorful chicken suits any occasion, plus it can be prepared for any number of guests. -Carolyn Deming, Miami, Arizona

MY REVIEW

It takes a little time to make it but it is worth. This dish is very tasty and the sauce is wonderful. I cut back a little on the tomatoes(my own preference) and served with plain rice cooked in vegetable broth, over which I put some of the sauce.
