    Terrific! The chicken was so moist and tasty. Great with a homemade salsa on the side or to mix with a salad. Adds a lot of flavour. - 8/20/07

    Served it with brown rice with tomatoes, black beans, and pico de gallo- DELICIOUS! And the leftovers make great burritos, just go easy on the cheese and sour cream. - 2/8/11
