“I like this recipe because it is easy and fast to prepare.I work 8long hours 5 days a week and when I get home I'm hungry now. Our family likes chicken with a sweet and sassy flavor and this recipe fits the bill. The recipe came from my creative mind. I do a lot of cooking and enjoy trying new and flavorful foods. My recipe has Caribbean flavor with a hint of Spanish influence. To speed up the cooking and severing time the chicken broth and salsa could be made the day before. I have found the salsa gets better over night.”
