very good! we especially liked the salsa, delicious! with a nice bite! The salsa could make it on it's own as a recipe! The chicken is almost beside the point, the salsa could be used on almost anything. Bet it would go well with fish or any kind of seafood. Thanks for posting, will definately make it again!
