“This is my all time favorite chicken recipe. It has an exotic flavor from simple ingredients around the house. Everyone I serve it to, loves it. Original recipe won the Pillsbury Bake-Off, but I've tweaked here and there. You can tweak it also: use chicken thighs instead of breasts, vary the degree of the salsa, etc. It's best served over couscous.”
