      Excellent! I used 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper and it still had quite the zing to it, but we like it like that, but I was trying to make it more mellow for the kids, which did not really work out. I also added 1/3 cup of long grain rice which made a lot of rice along with the salsa. Had to add a bit of chicken broth to be able to cook the rice until tender, perhaps my skillet was too large. I sprinkled with cilantro and green onions just before serving.

      Easy and so delicious! I omitted the salt (personal preference). We loved the flavors from the seasonings and salsa. Excellent. I took Andi's suggestion of adding in some rice, and it was absolutely wonderful with the chicken, soaking up all the salsa and juices. I got a great deal on chicken leg quarters, so I threw in thighs & drumsticks - loved it. Thanks for sharing!

      As much as I like chicken breast, and after reading the reviews I figured I would be the first to use chicken thighs. This is the kind of chicken for me at least, nice and spicy. Love the salsa here too. I made some rice to go along with this and cooked together. I also heated the salsa separately and poured over the chicken . This was an excellent combo. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
