Loved it! I cut the recipe and only cooked for an hour (cut breasts in half). Served w/ Baja Black Beans, Corn and Rice and sliced avacado sprinkled w/ a touch of salt and lime juice. Super easy dinner!

Excellent quick weekday dish. I loved it. I am not used to so much Cumin but it was good! Excellent with a Tex-Mex rice side dish. Thanks for the recipe!
