"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.

"My family loved it. I'm making it again tomorrow for my "significant other". This could very well be a "well used" recipe."

"My mom who is very much the meat-and-potatoes type is still, the next day, telling everyone how good it was, and my sister sat there at the table and finished off all the salsa. PS Mom is 97 and doesn't normally like what she refers to as fancy food."

"If my family doesn't care for pineapple what could be used in its place for the salsa? This sounds really good and I would like to try it."
