Mexican Chicken Kiev

Recipe by Geema

The type of salsa you use in this recipe will make all the difference if you like things mild or spicy. I love to use the green tomatillo salsa, along with some of the red to make this cheesy chicken dish look even more colorful. Garhish with lots of cilantro.

This is one of the best chicken recipes I've ever had. My wife loved it and now I am a hero in the kitchen! So filling and flavorful. Thanks for this recipe.
