This is a great recipe! I threw in a handful of cilantro right before I closed the lid to simmer and I'm very glad I did. It made it full of flavor.
This chicken was great! I can't believe that you don't have to marinate it! I follwoed the recipe and used corn tortillas, it wasn't excatly "Mexican" or at least not Nortena (baja) mexican, but very delicious. R it reminded me of a fish taco without being fried. i am going to try the same recipe with shrimp next time!
Tasty and easy to prepare. Instead of lettuce I added shredded cabbage and radishes with the tomatoes, cheese, and salsa. Also squeezed more lime over EVERYTHING. The tastes all blended nicely and the textures were all good.
