We loved this! I used a little less lemon juice! Great recipe! :-)

This was very good! I used some leftover grilled chicken, just heated it up in the pina colada mix and added more olives - a combination of Greek olives and black. Was very good. Will definitely make this again.

I left out the olives, celery and onions and grilled the chicken at a BBQ. The dish scored really high with my guests and myself!
