    After all the great reviews I was a little bit disappointed by this recipe. I thought that the outside flavors were pretty good but it would have seriously benefited from a marinade because the flavor didn't go through the meat. The inner meat was pretty tasteless. - 6/25/14

    I loved it. I'm a beginning cook and didn't know that you have to flatten first then butterfly. If you do it the other way around, the cut you make disappears from pounding the meat. I ended up rolling up the chicken and securing with a toothpick, cooked for 26 minutes and it was quite tasty. - 7/26/10

    Very Good
    We really enjoyed this recipe! I agree that I will use a little less cilantro next time, even though we love cilantro. It overpowered the other flavors. Overall, really good though, and it made great leftovers! - 6/14/09
