    This recipe was very good. However, I made a rub with the dry spices and grilled my chicken, then sauteed the vegetables. Also added more spice since we like it that way! We will use this one again! - 5/5/10

    I didn't have any cilantro, and added a tsp of cumin instead of a dash. We both enjoyed it very much, thanks! - 2/19/10
