Very tasty sauce but I'm going to try grilling the chicken next time - didn't really like the way it worked under the broiler... also double the sauce would be good too. Read More

This was okay but a bit bland for us. Maybe some of that can be attributed to the fact that I baked the chicken rather than broiled but I don't think that would have made too much of a difference. And I did season it first. But the sauce was alright if a tad sour. We ate it but I probably won't make again. Read More

This sauce is the BEST! We added fresh cilantro (and extra Tequila!). Grill instead of broil, then pour sauce on. Great on steak or fish filets, too. Read More

This recipe was awesome! I doubled the sauce (also had extra chicken). My husband liked it better without the tortilla. Next time I might also cut up green/red peppers & onions cook them on the grill then add the sauce to that too! Read More

Very nice flavor however the meat was a little tough. Next time will try to cut some slits on the breast so it cooks faster. Read More

I made this recipe while on vacation in Florida. It was my first big meal ever:) I was surprised at how simple it was yet how elegant it turned out! The kitchen I was using in the rental didn't have baking sheets or broiler pans so I used a frying pan stove top instead. I also omitted the tortillas and garnish and served it as just a main chicken entree. It worked great! I paired my meal with homemade Mexican rice mango/black bean salsa and beer margaritas. My boyfriend proposed to me the next day so it must have turned out:D Thanks so much for a great recipe! Read More

This chicken dish was delicious!! I found it very easy to prepare a quick dish to fix on a weeknight. Anything that takes 30min or less and tastes this good is wonderful! I added some spanish rice as a side dish! Read More

This recipe is good. It does taste a lot like a frozen margarita. The sauce if very easy to make. I didn't have any limes so I used bottled lime juice. I also grilled the chicken and then basted with the sauce the last ten minutes of cooking. I will probably make this again simply because it was so simple. Read More

This is a really good recipe. I didn't change the ingredients but I made it into a marinade by doubling the ingredients and let the chicken soak for about 4 hours. My hubby grilled it and he said "wow this tastes great". We'll make again and again this summer. Read More
