Reviews for Quick Cilantro Chicken
"We thought this was ok. I added diced avocado, sour cream and salsa to mine to add some flavor. it was great the next day on top of a southwestern salad, but we didn't think it was good on it's own."
"Very good! I substituted lime for the lemon and added some black beans and some carrots just because I had them around... This recipe wasn't dry at all for me. Will make again."
"It was very good but a little too much lemon. I will make it again with some modifications? It is a little too dry."
"Delicious and easy"
"When I first made this recipe, I made it as is and didn't add anything else. I liked it, but I felt it needed something more to balance it out. I made it again and I added black beans, salsa, and guacamole. It's great! It's like homemade Chipotle. Thanks for sharing!!"
