"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"

"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."

"Very easy to make using an electric skillet. In the future I will reduce the amount of chili powder as my family thought it was too spicy. I'll also use an instant rice to reduce the cooking time."

"Very easy to make, chicken was tender. Next time I'll use a hotter salsa to add more flavor to the corn and beans."
