      This was very tasty - spicy too. I did not have salsa so I 'improvised' with Rotel mixed with picante sauce. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly as written. The chicken turned out nice and tender and very flavorful - I liked the spices rubbed on before cooking. To be honest, I'm not crazy about corn, so I could have done without it, but DH really enjoyed the whole meal. I'll make this again as I like that it is nicely balanced nutritionally - but I might swap out the corn for carrots. Thanks for posting - made for ZWT8 and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys!

      Made for Potluck Tag. This was okay and not really spicy at all. I added additional chili powder and cumin. Served with rice abd a sude salad.

      I made this recipe exactly as written with 2 deviations. I actually made these into chicken burritos and added some lettuce and guacamole. LOVED IT! These were SO good. I brine the chicken in my basic chicken/turkey brine, leaving the chicken extra moist and tender. The spice combination is really fantastic and can be jacked up or kicked down in spiciness according to your palette.
