      We've been enjoying this recipe since 2008! Kids love it, adults love it! If you can start with a pre-cooked chicken, it's super fast! Sometimes I use frozen cilantro cubes from Trader Joe's, to give it more cilantro flavor. And instead of 1 cup green salsa, I use a whole jar of Trader Joe's green salsa. Super good with cotija cheese too. This recipe keeps and reheats well too. My 3 boys love it!! Thank you so much!

      Delicious. I subbed the cilantro for 1/2 tsp of coriander powder and used the chicken to make fantastic enchiladas. Will use frequently.

      I made this last night and it was very good! Followed the recipe except I didn' thave green chili salsa so I added a little bit of ortega green sauce and I used regular oregano because I didn't have mexican oregano. The lime added to the meat made it even better. Very easy to make...thanks for posting.
