  • “In one word, SUPERB!The chicken fell to pieces so it was more like a Southwestern chicken stew.I added a few chopped jalepeno’s.I also thickened the broth with a little corn starch and served with spanish rice.Even my boyfriend, who hardly utters more than “it was okay” when he is asked how supper was, said “this is really good!”Coming from him, that is huge!Thanks for such a great recipe.”

  • “Made this recipe exactly as directed last Sunday and followed a review suggestion of using broth for the rice. The rice turned out terrible! NEVER before has jasmine rice so disappointed me so I wouldn’t recommend that part at all.The chicken itself was pretty good (though quite hot for those who don’t like their food burning their tongues) but hubby was quite ambivalent about it anyway. “It’s okay” said he with a shrug. Never one to be chinzy about rave reviews, he did not give this a “keeper” rating and I probably won’t make this one again.”

  • “This dish was absolutely delicious.I made this with Green Chili Rice (#28755) and refried beans.The family loved it.Next time I’m going to try using the sauce as a marinade and injecting it in a whole chicken and then roasting the chicken.It should be tantalizing either way!”

  • “This was really good.I used the broth to make rice to go with it and served the chicken on top.Great dish!”

  • “This is DELICIOUS!We shredded the chicken and served it with rice and corn and together they made a fabulous meal.We used Jose Cuervo Lime for the tequila and I really think it was perfect for this.We also topped this with a bit of fresh cilantro.We also used all boneless skinless chicken breasts for this and they were done around an hour or so earlier.I also used sunny D as the orange juice since I had some on hand.PERFECT!”

  • “This turned out delicious.i used boneless skinless chicken breasts.this will go in my favorites file–very easy and yummy!”
