Fast and tasty meal.
I used fresh salsa with red bell peppers and chili. I finished my dried garlic so used some chopped fresh one.
I topped the chickien with some green onion.
In 25 minutes everything was ready and the chicken was moist and tender.
Thanks a lot for this easy and yummi menu.
Thanks for sharing another great, easy to prepare recipe. I doubled the amount of salsa and the dish had the perfect amount of heat. It almost tasted like Chili's Margarita Chicken.
