      This was fabulous! I added extra lime juice to the marinade and a tablespoon of fresh minced garlic. I needed everything ready to cook up quickly in the evening, so I made the salsa in the afternoon and marinated the chicken for 5 hours or so. So glad I did! The chicken was amazingly moist and tender. I also added some cilantro to the salsa and doubled the amount of everything in the salsa except for the avocado. It was light and fantastically flavorful. Definitely making this again!

      This chicken was so good, we had it two nights in a row! The salsa on top gave even more flavor to the already juicy chicken! I served this with Cilantro Rice (also found on zaar). This is my new favorite meal!
