  • Very Good
    Pretty good - I added garlic and we grilled the breast. I boiled the sauce and we had it on the side. Will make again. - 11/5/08

  • Incredible!
    This recipe is unbelievable! I used the hot salsa (in a jar) and served red beans and rice as a side. My husband wolfed it down! I am making it again soon for a group gathering. The flavors were so good! Cannot wait to hear the group review! - 2/2/08
