Very good. I marinated the chicken breast in a little EVOO along with the taco seasoning which helps keep the breast moist while it cooks.
Salsa part of this recipe was good but the chicken itself was bland. I have better chicken receipes so not sure I'll be making this one again.
Awesome chicken dish. I was actually quite disappointed to be full! With a little extra tomato and lime juice, as well as cilantro, the salsa gives a surprisingly spicy kick. Great recipe, can't wait to try it again.
Love this recipe! Perfect summer dish with great flavor!
Sounds great, thank you for all the reviews!
