      Very good and easy. I added cilantro, onion and garlic powder to the water where I cooked the chicken and used that broth for the cup of water ( didn't use the whole cup as it would water it down too much). Once the chicken was cooked, I removed the breasts and added the tomato pieces and cooked until soft. Saved a little bit of calories from the oil. Once the sauce was made in the blender, I added and the chicken it to the onions and simmered. Came out great!

      This had great flavor and was wonderful on crispy tostada shells. I topped the tostadas with all the usual toppings-lettuce, tomato, cheese, and avocado. The only problem for me was the amount of water, it could be reduced by half or maybe left out completely. I used 2 chipotles, which was plenty spicy for us.
