Reviews for Grilled Chicken with Salsa
"My whole family loved this chicken, although I changed the salsa to fruit only with pineapple, mango, and strawberry."
"Very flavorful grilled chicken. It makes a lot of salsa which is easy to use up with tortilla chips."
"Actually, I didn't even make the salsa, but it does look very good. The fresh pineapple makes it very appealing. But the chicken recipe -- that marinade is simply wonderful. I love that it uses ingredients I keep on hand and contains very little oil. This will be my go-to marinade from here on out. It added terrific flavor to the chicken."
"Delicious! We omitted the cilantro & jalapeno since we don't care for either. Very fresh & tasty.~ Theresa"
