Reviews for Chicken with Mandarin Salsa
"A nice and light meal. I left out the pecans. I will definitely make again when something quick is needed. V"
"This is a great recipe. Has lots of color and flavor. I added fresh mango to the salsa because I had it to use. Leftovers were great too. Will definitely make this again."
