A delicious one-dish meal that we thoroughly enjoyed! I used a 340 g jar of medium salsa and fresh garlic instead of powder. Next time I'll also add a touch of seasoning to the chicken when browning it. Thank you for a lovely recipe!
Extremely easy to prepare. And delicious. Instead of garlic powder I used fresh garlic gloves. I did put 3 of those. Next time I am planning to add also some fresh tomato slices.
Forgot the stars!! Definately five!!
