This is an old recipe that I've worked with over the years and finally have it the way everyone seems to like it. It's best prepared a day ahead -- and let it set in the refrigerator to blend the flavors. I usually serve it with a Mexican or Spanish rice and some refried beans. My husband likes to make burritos out of the left over chicken, rice and beans.
