MY REVIEW

Good spicy flavorful chicken! I used a medium salsa and it was just a tad bit spicy for my taste. Next time, I will use a mild salsa. It was easy to make as well

Awesome meal. Only used half the chili powder and it was perfect for the whole family!

This was good - nice & spicy. Forgot I didn't have corn so the salsa part wasn't that great without it. Just baked chicken in the oven and made the salsa separately.
