"Very quick, spicy, and yummy! I substituted seasoned black beans for the chick peas and it turned out well."

"Very good. Used chicken thighs browned and simmered with the garlic; served with sour cream, corn muffins with cilantro butter. Will make again!"

"I made this at DH's request. It was pretty good. I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, added 2 sliced carrots and used regular salsa rather than try to find "lime garlic salsa". I didn't have and cilantro, so I ommitted that. All in all very good, quick, and easy! Even my 15 month old liked it! I served with warm rolls."
