Delicious! I make this dish often for my family. You can adjust the spices to your taste. I like to add some cayenne to this chicken as well.

Fast and very flavorful! I used low sodium beans and hot salsa. We loved the seasoning so much I mixed up an extra batch and keep it in my spice rack.

Great quick dinner with good flavor. We added sour cream and cheese on the side and I always add bouillon to my rice. Rave reviews from the whole family. Will definitely make again.

Loved this recipe! Instead of the rice, I made a southwest chicken salad. Other than that, the only thing I added was some saut?ed onion and green peppers. Served with a cilantro lime dressing. Mmmmmm.

I used chicken tenderloins, but other than that, I made it per the recipe. Loved it, and loved that it was a healthy dish.

Made this exactly as written except added 2 additional chicken breasts. We found this to be pretty spicy as other reviewers have stated. My kids wouldn't eat it and they usually like salsa, corn and black beans.

I made this as written except that I substituted thighs for the half-breasts (it's what I had). Quick, easy and very tasty. Thanks for posting. Sour cream and cilantro would be a great addition, but very good without.

The first time that I made this was a huge hit! Just the right amount of heat for my family. Also, I prepared 2 extra breaststroke which I froze for later.
