      Fast, easy and delicious, a great combination! Dinner was on the table in about 15 minutes, wow! We really enjoyed this recipe. I served it with a dollop of plain yogurt and some fresh chive on top, also, I used yellow bell pepper as I had no red. Otherwise I didn't change a thing! Thanks for a deicious and different meal. Made for Aussie Swap :)

      Quick (if you cook the chicken ahead of time), easy, healthy and tasty. You get grain, protein, and veggies in a low-fat dressing. The cumin, orange juice, and chopped raisins are especially good together. I made this recipe per directions, but will also play around with it. Thanks, Jan

      I scaled this back for 3 but still had a serving left over which the DM has demanded for lunch tomorrow. It wasn't until I went to make the dish that I discovered that I didn't have any lemon juice so used all orange and omited the cilantro as we don't care for the taste. Thank you wicked cook 46 for a great simple easy to make recipe, made for Everyday A Holiday.
