Made as written and this was pretty good. My husband found the mint to be a bit overwhelming and I found the same to be true with the basil. So on that note I would use less of each next time but keep the cilantro the same. Typically cilantro tends to overpower but not in this combo. I served this hot and it was still a perfect summertime meal. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Delicious way to use ground chicken! We stuffed it in pitas topping with bleu cheese and sautéed onions and mushrooms. The sweet/tangy flavor from the lime juice was great. Read More
