Adopted from the RecipeZaar account. I haven't made it yet. This recipe came from the Surreal Gourmet and will have you dancin'(with the mambo and the salsa)!

I have made this many times. My family loves it (even my husband that hates chicken). I usually grill it instead of baking it and it works great with porkloin.
