Last night's delicious dinner, and leftovers for lunch today, and I can hardly wait. I get my chicken breasts pre-flattened at the supermarket. I used a mild salsa instead of the picante sauce, and the aroma coming off the grill was tempting all my neighbors! Thanks, Nurse Di, this one is going to be made often, especially now that the summer is here!
Oh how wonderful. Made this for Memorial Day cook-out. Folks stopped dead in their tracks when they smelled the aroma. They tasted even better. This was so easy and a real crowd pleaser. Thanks for another great recipe.
This chicken was soooo tender and easy to prepare. Great on the BBQ. We served over rice and it was fabulous. We are going to try it w/pork next. Thanks for a great recipe:-)
