"This was excellent, easy and would be great for a summer cookout with friends and family. I served it with Zataran's Yellow Rice. I doubled the salsa and served it next day with tortilla chips."

"I really liked the marinade for the chicken. The salsa was good, but nobody at our house is a fan of avocado, so I would probably omit that next time."

"we were out of gas so couldn't grill the chicken and broiled it instead. The chicken still came out yummy and the salsa was very tasty!"
