"I thought this was really delicious. I had to make a few substitutions. I wasn't able to find chipotle in adobo in my grocery store, so I used chipotle salsa. I used a little roasted red pepper in the sauce to give it some body. I also added a dash of cumin and a dash of chili powder for an extra smoky flavor. It was quick and easy!"

"This recipe was very good. I probably used a little more ckn broth and lime juice than called for just to tame the heat and/or dilute it. Served it with brown basmati rice. This is a keeper!"
