    I make this all the time, but I usually marinate the chicken in the salsa overnight before cooking. Adds a little more "kick" to the chicken! - 5/22/12

    This is excellent and so quick. My calorie counter says 347 calories per serving [140 for chicken, 35 for salsa, and 172 for brown rice]. I may try it with Quinoa next time and add mushrooms and onion. - 5/21/12

    I made this tonight and it was delicious! My husband already asked me to make it again! I only had about 1 cup of salsa in the fridge so I used that and one can of diced tomatoes. It turned out great! - 2/7/13
